On March 10th, the Town of Bedford will be switching its source of drinking water from the MWRA system to the Town of Burlington supply. This will alter the type of chlorine used for disinfection which may impose a slight taste and odor change in your water. There may also be a minor reduction in water pressure.
By using the Burlington water supply for approximately 4-5weeks, we expect to improve the disinfection residuals to the outer areas of our distribution system. This should help with the water quality issues we experienced last summer due to low chlorine levels.
In addition, water improvement projects scheduled for this year are to clean and line the water mains in Shawsheen Road and Page Road and to implement a gate valve operational program to ensure full potential of our distribution system.
Please contact the Bedford Water Division at (781) 275-7605 if you have any questions or need additional information. Thank you for your patience.
