We’ve heard from several community members that are experiencing cloudy/discolored water, so community volunteers will be performing unscheduled water system maintenance this afternoon.
This water system flushing involves running large volumes of water through our water system in an effort to remove sediments that may have collected with the distribution piping.
As the water is flushed through the lines, Ferric Iron (res water iron) that is loosely adhered to the inside of the pipes will be scrubbed loose and flow downstream. Most of the loose Ferric Iron will be flushed out, but you may find your water is cloudy and has reddish brown particles in it for a few days. This has no effect on the water quality (other than visually), and may be resolved by running your water for a few minutes.
Contact us if you have any questions.
