Possible discolored water for some WMass residents


SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The Springfield Water and Sewer Commission is reopening a transmission main after routine maintenance on one of the transmission mains that delivers water from Provin Mountain Reservoir to the City of Springfield and Ludlow.

Due to flow increases and changes in flow direction, some customers may temporarily experience discolored water.

If you experience discolored water, run all cold-water faucets for 2 to 3 minutes, shut the water off, allow the water to settle for about 15 minutes, and run the water again for 2 to 3 minutes.

If the water does not run clear, repeat this process. Do not run the hot water faucets until the cold water runs clear.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Springfield Water and Sewer Commission at 413-787-6206.
