WINTHROP — Town Manager Austin Faison reports that water service has been restored after an interruption earlier today.
Residents may see some discoloration in their water, but it is safe to use. Residents are advised to run their facet until it is clear.
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 worked with MWRA officials to establish an alternative water source and correct the issue.
