The Town of Milton is performing routine maintenance on its’ water system which has resulted in some discoloring of the water in some parts of Town.
The area affected runs inside of Canton Avenue, Brook Road, Reedsdale Road and to all connecting streets.
If discolored water does occur, it is a result from a small amount of iron in local pipes. While it is still safe for drinking, cooking and other uses, please note that iron will stain light colored items in your laundry, especially when bleach is used.
Residents near this location should check water clarity before washing any white or lighter colored laundry during this period of work.
For more information, call the Milton Department of Public Works at 617-898-4900.
