We have received some complaints about discolored water from various residents in the Village. We apologize for the inconvenience however please rest assured that the water is 100% safe for drinking and bathing. Please use caution when doing laundry, particularly white and light colors as discoloration may occur.
The cause of this discoloration is due to the ongoing demolition at the new Hannaford Supermarket site (At the foot of Oak Street, formerly the Thruway). The construction crew incorrectly hooked up to a fire hydrant which has stirred up some sediment same as when we normally flush the fire hydrants (coming up in October actually).
Once again we apologize for the inconvenience and hope that the problem is resolved quickly.
