Planned Water Main Repair, Old Sudbury Road

Be advised: On Tuesday, June 18th Sudbury Water District will be repairing a water main on Old Sudbury Road at the intersection of Rice Road during the hours of 9 am-5 pm (approx.) Water service on Old Sudbury Road, Rice Road and Fieldstone Farm Road will be temporarily interrupted allowing for repair. Service is anticipated to be restored within 8 hours however outage duration is a best-estimate based on past emergency events it is not an exact time. Impacted residents should make arrangements to be without water during this period.

We apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for your patience as we work hard to restore water service to this area as quickly as possible.

What to expect once water is restored? Those in close proximity to this area of town may experience fluctuating pressure (air in pipes) or discolored water (mineral sediment lifting from the bottom of the pipes and traveling with the water-flow inside the main.) Once water is restored running a cold tap briefly will assist in clearing your service line of air and minerals.

Is the water safe to drink? Slight discoloration may sometimes linger for a few hours, it is not harmful to your health and only temporarily affects the appearance of the water, it does not influence water quality. Water conditions typically improve overnight.
