MWRA Voluntary Sewer Shutdown – May 20, 2015

The Massachusetts Water Resources Authority provides sewer service to Tufts Boston and Medford/Somerville campuses.

MWRA will be performing maintenance activities at its Deer Island Wastewater Treatment Plant over the next two years which may include up to 30 shutdowns.

To minimize increases in sewer levels at the Deer Island Plant, the MWRA requests that Tufts Medford/Somerville campus voluntarily cease or minimize all discharges to the sewer between 10:00 pm on May 20th and 3:00 am on May 21st.

Additional trial shutdowns will be taking place over the course of the next month. Additional notifications will be provided prior to each shutdown.

For additional information, please contact Tufts EHS at 617-636-3615.
