WINTHROP — Town Manager Austin Faison reports that the Town of Winthrop’s Department of Public Works is working to correct an issue that has resulted in an interruption in water service in town.
Earlier this afternoon a pressure reducing station on the Winthrop-Revere line malfunctioned, preventing water from entering into Winthrop from Revere via Massachusetts Water Resources Authority infrastructure. The Winthrop DPW is working with MWRA officials to establish an alternative water source and correct the issue.
An alternative water line has been established and service will gradually be restored.
“We apologize for the sudden inconvenience this has caused and want to assure our residents we’re doing everything we can to correct it as efficiently as possible,” Public Works Director Steven Calla said.
The Town of Winthrop will provide updates as they become available.
