Temporary MWRA Water Usage
July 14, 2016 The installation of the 42 inch water main on Huron Avenue has been competed. We are currently preforming several tests and will be transitioning back to all CWD water once all the tests are finished. We anticipate this transition to be completed by the end of July.
May 2, 2016: Continue the installation of 42” water main to replace the existing old transmission main on Huron Avenue and continue using a small percentage of MWRA Water. If you experience any unusual water issues such as discoloration or pressure problems, please contact us at 617-349-4770.
February 22, 2016: Continue to make minor adjustments to maintain flow and pressure as we use a small percentage of MWRA water while the rehabilitation of the 40” transmission main on Huron Avenue continues. If you experience any unusual water issues such as discoloration or pressure problems, please contact us at 617-349-4770.
February 3, 2016: As a result of shutting down the 40 inch water transmission main on Huron Avenue, CWD continues to make adjustments in order to maintain water flows and pressure. As a result, CWD may need to periodically supplement the water supply with up to 10% of MWRA water.
Today, February 2, 2016, CWD shut down the 40 inch water transmission main on Huron Avenue.
CWD is replacing the water transmission main in conjunction with the Huron Avenue sewer separation project. As a result, CWD may need to supplement the Cambridge water supply with MWRA water beginning in mid-February. The Cambridge Water Department is starting the transition process the week of February 1st. For up to date information, please follow @CambWaterDept on Twitter or check out www.cambridgema.gov/water. If you have any questions please call us 617-349-4770.
