Hanson: Dirty Water Problem Expected to be Resolved in 2 to 3 Weeks

Unlike the 1960’s singing group, the Standells, who “loved that dirty water”, Hanson residents are not happy about the dirty water flowing from their faucets.

One homeowner described the water as looking like root beer.

The problem is that Hanson’s water tank is currently not in operation because of routine maintenance, and the town has been using water borrowed from the city of Brockton.

Water Superintendent Richard Muncy says the difference in water pressure between Brockton and Hanson is causing pipes in Hanson to burst.

And the water pressure differences are also causing sediment to be built up, and the water now has a lot of iron and manganese in it.

The problem is expected to be resolved within the next two to three weeks, according to Water Superintendent Muncy.
