My water is brown. Why?
Typically, brown water is the result of a disruption of the normal flow of water. This could be from a water main break, from some improvements, or as a result of some flushing of a portion of the system to maintain long term water quality objectives. Typically the water will clear up within a few hours or a day. If it persists please call the DPW main number and staff will follow up on your notification. For more information please call 508-457-2543.
