The Milford Water Company is looking into several reports of discolored water, the organization announced Thursday

MWC reportedly received phone calls for discolored water in the area of Chapin, Fruit and Claflin streets on Thursday, according to the announcement. 

"We are looking for leaks, unauthorized use of a fire hydrant or if a business flushed their sprinkler service in the area," MWC said.

I have a whole house filter on my incoming water as well as another filter on my kitchen drinking water. I changed the whole house filter yesterday and found green deposits on the outside of the filter. I don't know what they are, and I've never seen them before. I've been filtering my water like this for 10 years, and it does make a difference. But I'm going to get this filter tested to find out what these deposits are. And we live down in the plains section of town.Even this filtered water has been tasting funny this last 2 weeks.

The Brita filters won't remove some of the junk coming through. We had high levels of tthm and were told most filters won't remove that. I think it is time for Milford to elect some new blood into office and see if we can get some positive changes for the future.

Someone should call Hank-Filipee Ryan. She'll tell her millions of viewers of the Milford, MA water mess.
