Water Discoloration

The Utilities Department is aware of discolored water currently in the system and is working on the repair as we speak.  The cause is a broken water main near Barker Reservoir.  The discoloration comes from sediment in the pipe being stirred up due to the velocity at which highly pressurized water expels from a pipe during a main break.  There are no health concerns with the water, however all residents and businesses should flush their COLD water until the water runs clear before drinking or using for laundry or the like.  

 

Thank you for your understanding while the Utilities Department works to repair the main break.
