On April 11, a Boiling water order was issued for Russell Stage Road, numbers 1-28 and Maple Lane numbers 1-10 as a potential risk to the drinking water due to a water main break and having to temporary bypass using the fire hydrants.

• On Monday, April 12, 2021, MassDEP collected water system samples from three locations, including hydrants #68, #69 and #79. All results were absent for total coliform bacteria. The results were received on Wednesday April 14, 2021.

Please be advised, the Blandford Board of Health has lifted the Boil Water requirement on April 14, 2021 after conferring with the Mass Department of Environmental Protection on the above action.
