Story, page 3. PHOTO | SPENSER HASAK A standing-room-only crowd packed the hearing room at the Lynnfield Center Water District (LCWD) Monday night demanding clean water. “My water stinks of chlorine and I won’t drink this terrible brown water that stains my clothes in the washer,” said Stephanie Rauseo of Russet Lane who brought photos of the discolored water for the threemember Board of Water Commissioners. In the tiny room where the temperature reached over 80 degrees despite a window air conditioner, residents of Apple Hill Lane, Lowell and Main streets, and Cortland Lane said they have been have been living with brown and sometimes black water for years. Lisa Lopez, who bought a six-bedroom Cape style home with her husband on West Tapley Road five years ago, said neighbors want answers now about what will be done and if there’s a plan to remedy the problem. “I can’t drink the water, I can’t do the laundry,” she said. “No effort has been made to look at my home. I’ve yet to hear what you plan to do about it.” Established by the Legislature in 1939, LCWD is one of two water districts WATER, PAGE 2 UNDER AGREEMENT 1 DAY UNDER AGREEMENT NEW LISTING!
