Water Restored to Old Sudbury Road Area

Water has been fully restored to Old Sudbury Road, Fieldstone Farm Road and Rice Road following a water main repair. We apologize for this inconvenience and are grateful for your patience as  repairs were extensive requiring a longer than expected outage-duration. Our dedicated field staff worked through the very early morning hours to complete the task and restore water.

We encourage you (if you haven’t already done so) to sign-up for SMART911, an emergency alert system jointly used by the Town, Sudbury PD, Sudbury Fire and the Water District. This is the fastest and most direct way to alert users of an event or emergency. Alerts are available by text, voice or email. Remember, if you don’t sign-up you won’t receive alerts that could impact your household or business.

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.

Thank you once again for your patience.
