Framingham receives its water from the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA). As an MWRA community, we are obligated to perform comprehensive leak detection surveys to ensure we are losing as little water as possible through leaks in the water mains and services within our system. All water distribution systems need to account for all the water it supplies to its users, therefore minimizing these losses is an important piece of what we do.
With over 250 miles of water main and 17,000+ service connections in Framingham, it is important that we locate and address any leaks in the distribution system to reduce unaccounted for water loss and minimize lost revenue.
Information about the next upcoming leak detection survey will be provided once scheduled.
