Water Main break in Weston MA

Water service to all MWRA customer communities east of Weston has been interrupted by a major water pipe break in Weston. Due to this break, a boil water order is being issued for drinking water for all MWRA communities east of Weston until further notice.

In addition, emergency water conservation measures are being implemented for all impacted communities. The MWRA is activating its emergency water supplies such as the Sudbury Aqueduct, Chestnut Hill Reservoir and Spot Pond Reservoir. This water will not be suitable for drinking unless it is boiled first, but can be used for bathing, flushing, and fire protection.

Updates will be posted on Mass.gov and the MWRA's website at www.mwra.com throughout the event.

A complete list of MWRA water communities affected can also be found at the MWRA site.

MassDEP has a Boil Water Order FAQ at mass.gov.
