Temporary MWRA Water Usage in Cambridge


MWRA Temporary Usage

Starting in mid-September Cambridge drinking water will be supplemented with Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA) water. This is a direct result of the Cambridge Water Department coordinating and supporting two MWRA related projects:

1) MWRA pipe line upgrade in Waltham: www.mwra.com/01news/2013/051313-7022-waltham-watertown.html

2) Sewer Separation Project in Cambridge on Huron Avenue: www.cambridgema.gov/theworks/cityprojects.aspx. This water supply configuration will continue for about four months (i.e. September through January). As the work schedule becomes more definitive, we will better define the specific timeline for this water supply scenario.

We do not anticipate any water quality or quantity issues during this period since the water qualities are similar and we have very successfully used the MWRA water supply in the past.  Information about the MWRA water quality can be found at www.mwra.com

For updates check the Cambridge Water Dept. webpage, follow us on twitter or if you have any specific questions or concerns, please call Edward Dowling at 617-349-4780.
