Bridge Project Causing Discolored Water for Some

water-droplet-715264_1920Some residents on the east side of Hamilton have reported discolored water after a water main was shut down as part of the construction project on the Miles River bridge.

The Hamilton Water Department has received several calls from residents on the east side of town reporting discolored water. It is recommended that anyone experiencing discolored water should flush an outside spigot until the water runs clear or let the system rest for several hours to allow sediment to settle and then run outside spigots to ensure the water is clear.

The Hamilton Water Department staff is assessing the situation to determine how to best respond, but the issues is related to repair work on the culvert under Bridge Street, which required shutting down a water main while construction was being completed.

“We apologize for the inconvenience, normal water service will return early next week,” said Town Manager Michael Lombardo. “Thank you for your patience.”
