Temporary MWRA Water Usage

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.   If you experience any unusual water issues such as discoloration or pressure problems, please contact us at 617-349-4770.

Today, February 2, 2016, CWD shut down the 40 inch water transmission main on Huron Avenue.  If you experience any water discoloration, please contact us at 617-349-4770.

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 onTwitter or check out www.cambridgema.gov/water.  If you have any questions please call us 617-349-4770.
