Occasionally Providence Water receives consumer questions or complaints regarding the appearance of drinking water, specifically iron-tinted discolored water. There are two major sources that can cause water to be discolored – flow changes in the water mains caused by a main leak or an open fire hydrant, and/or the water pipes in your property, often from a failing hot water heater.

Contract 7 entails replacing/relining mains and replacing lead services in the Auburn section of Cranston. Homes and businesses will continue to receive water while construction is ongoing.

Its critics say the US penny has become obsolete, and there has been much discussion about taking it entirely out of circulation. The reason for this thinking is simple-there's not much left of any value that you can buy for one cent.

The work shall consist of the cleaning and cement lining of approximately 46,250 L.F. of existing 6", 8" and 12" cast-iron water mains; and the removal and replacement of appurtenances (valves, hydrants and services), including the replacement of existing lead water service lines with new copper water service lines and appurtenances within public space, and the associated permanent restoration of streets, sidewalks, and grassy areas, within the Providence wayland and Blackstone service areas of the Providence Water Supply Board’s distribution system.
