We are closely monitoring a family of chemicals called per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS)

that have been detected in some public water supplies in Massachusetts and across the nation.

Recently, the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) issued a new

drinking water standard for the sum of six PFAS compounds (PFAS6).  This new standard requires

all Massachusetts public water suppliers to test for PFAS.  The sum of PFAS6 may not exceed 20

nanograms per liter (ng/L), also equal to 20 parts per trillion (ppt). 

We invite you to visit, www.safewatermass.org    a website developed by the Massachusetts Water Works Association to provide information and reliable sources of additional information.

FLUSHING  The Warren Water District will be flushing fire hydrants from April 5 through the end of the month, from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Customers should check water for black discoloration before washing clothes, dishes, etc., as there could be periods during the day with LOW or NO pressure during flushing.  If there are any problems, please call our office at 436-9819 between the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. 

EMERGENCY REVERSE 911 CALLS:  A new system is being installed and we no longer have any phone numbers for our customers.     PLEASE SUBMIT YOU PHONE NUMBER FOR THE NEW EMERGENCY CALL NOTIFICATION. Unfortunately no phone numbers were transferred to this new system.  I am sorry for any inconvenience this has caused.
