In an effort to lessen mineral sediment impact, area hydrant flushing was conducted. Although these efforts will reduce sediment amount, it is unlikely all traces will be removed. Homes and businesses in close proximity to Old Sudbury Road may experience discolored water for a short period of time. Running a cold faucet will help clear your service line of minerals. Always avoid washing laundry when water is noticeably discolored.
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.
