Burnham acknowledged the water discoloration problems vexing Cortland Lane residents and their neighbors and said a planned high-pressure flushing of the district’s pipe will help reduce discoloration. Karen Colby, Peter Volpe and three other neighbors vented their frustration to selectmen during the board’s Monday night meeting at MarketStreet. Karen Colby, Cortland Lane, held up a bottle of bronze-tinted water she said resembles tea her family likes to drink. “I can’t tell you how many white towels we’ve ruined.

He said the district is prepared to do flushing with the aim of reducing discoloration as soon as it has sufficient water WATER, PAGE 3 AGREEMENT! UNDER SOLD!
