Water gate maintenance on Boston Post Road (between Concord Road through to Wayside Inn Road) is scheduled for Monday, September 26th.
How will this effect you? Water conditions in the southwest quadrant of Sudbury (specifically homes and businesses in close proximity to this area) may notice a slight drop in pressure or briefly experience discolored water caused by reverse flows lifting mineral sediment from the bottom of the pipes and traveling with the water-flow inside the main. Running cold tap briefly will assist in clearing your service line of minerals.
Is the water safe to drink? 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.
