Why is my water discolored?
The city has four wells producing water that is high in iron. One well is treated with a sequestering agent, a process similar to water softening. The other three wells use a filter system to remove iron and manganese.

Although rare, there are times when iron can enter the water system and you may experience orange colored water. Discolored water is unsightly and will oftentimes produce an odor accompanied by a metallic taste, yet it possesses no health risk. Please contact the Public Works Operations Department if you do experience discolored water or water that has an odor.
