IMPORTANT: Boil water order in Chester

The Town of Chester has issued the following statement:


During the process of replacing the Town’s existing hydrants, cross contamination occurred necessitating the need for a mandatory boil water order. This is anticipated to be in effect for 3 to 4 days and will be followed by a heavy dose of chlorination. If you have any questions please contact the Town Office at 875-2173.

From the Chester Telegraph:

The State of Massachusetts has an FAQ section about boil water orders on the website of the Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs. We are providing this as a public service.

    Is there any update on when the issue will be resolved? I called the Town Tuesday morning and they said samples were sent out for testing. Any results? I asked when the incident had occurred, because I had driven on Depot Street around 2 PM and saw the hydrants out of the ground. We received the Vermontel robo-call much later at 5:30 PM.
