 Brown Water Notice

A preventative sewer maintenance and inspection project has begun on Kensington, and will continue on Devonshire, Wellesley, and Amherst. The sewers are being cleaned and televised to ensure that our infrastructure is functioning as designed and in good shape.

This project entails jetting out the sewers with water to clean them. This requires the maintenance trucks to draw water from fire hydrants. When the hydrants are opened it can release sediment from the water mains into the water. This will color the water brown. The water is not dangerous or toxic, and will clear up if you run water in your house to clear out the water lines. Usually this takes 5-15 minutes or so.

The sewer cleaning project will be ongoing for the rest of this week, and possibly beyond. We understand that this is a short term annoyance and thank you for your patience and understanding.
