[Editor's note: Aquarion changed the date of the scheduled water main cleaning on the Stonington side of Mystic, and this article was updated to reflect that change.]

A water main cleaning program will impact the Stonington and Groton sides of Mystic next week.

During the cleaning, scheduled for April 14 and April 16, Aquarion Water Co. customers may notice some discoloration in their water. 

"This discoloration results from the temporary disturbance of the water flow, which stirs up naturally occurring minerals that settle in water mains," a press release from Aquarion states. "Aquarion recommends customers store water in their refrigerators for drinking and cooking. Customers should also refrain from washing laundry if water is discolored." 

"Prior to resuming use, customers should run their cold water faucets until the water appears clear," Aquarion recommends.
