On Wednesday, June 16, the city’s Water Department crew will be conducting a standard well-production flow test. The test creates a great amount of pressure and will likely stir up naturally occurring iron residue in water mains.
If you experience discolored water, open the cold tap nearest the water meter to full flow until the water runs clear. The iron that discolors water is certainly not appealing, but is not harmful in any way. Running your faucet will quickly clear it up.
