Water Quality Update

Water Quality Update – August 4, 2010 4:15 PM

Due to increased seasonal water demands and  higher temperatures than normal for extended periods of time,  Chlorine disinfection levels have been increased in our distribution system.  In some areas of Town, this has the potential to result in a notable change in water taste and odor.  

In an effort to keep customers who live within these areas informed of this change, on Tuesday, August 2, an automated message call was sent to specific neighborhoods where it was suspected this change would be most noticeable.

At this time, we believe it is important to inform all customers that at no time was there any public health risk or need for concern.  The water remains safe to drink. Concord Public Works continues to encourage all customers to use water wisely, especially when it comes to outdoor water use.  Your willingness to collectively and voluntarily regulate excessive use during such times is imperative. This voluntary cooperation will help to avert a more restrictive mandatory water use ban. 

Please contact Concord Public Works Water and Sewer Division at (978) 318 -3250 for further information or assistance. Thank you
