Update from Water Manager Eric Carty

contribute's picture

Good afternoon this is Eric Carty with the Hopkinton DPW. We would like to update you on the current water situation. We are continuing to flush fire hydrants in the affected areas and we are starting to notice a decrease in the discoloration. Please be advised that although the water is discolored, it is safe to use and not a threat to public health. The discoloration is caused by the mineral deposits being dislodged from the inside of the pipe surface due to the water breaks. You should periodically check your water to see if your pipes have cleared.

Reception for Ilene Silver

After 19 years of service to the Hopkinton school system, Elmwood School Principal Ilene Silver has officially retired. To celebrate her impact, the HPTA threw a retirement party for Silver on June 12th. Silver was touched by the outpouring of support, and could not believe the amount of people, some who she hadn't seen in years, that showed up.

The reception was planned by HPTA members Kristin Kane and Christine Tourigny, both who were happy to recognize Silver for not only her dedication to Elmwood, but to the HPTA as well.
