For all Town of North East Water Customers:
You may be experiencing yellow water at times due to the start-up of a new mixing and TTHM / HAA5 removal system that has been installed in the Irishtown water tower. Even though we have been meeting all MCL goals set by the state of Maryland and EPA, these systems were installed to further drop TTHM and HAA5 levels.
The water is safe to drink.
The affected areas are as follows:
Irishtown Road, Timber Lane, Rowels Lane, Jamestown Ct., Yorktown Ct., Dela Plain development, and Chesapeake Club.
Please check your water for color before doing your laundry. We apologize for this inconvenience that may last for a week.
