Russell Buckels, Water Division Superintendent, said that use of water by the customer during or shortly after the hydrant testing pulls in the discolored water, but that this is a temporary condition and the water is safe for domestic use.

Said Buckels:

“If a customer experiences discoloration in the water, they should try flushing their line for about five minutes to see if this corrects the situation. If the water is still discolored, the customer should wait about an hour then flush again. If the water continues to be discolored after this procedure, citizens should call 491-1598 or 491-1599, or after hours at 491-1483.
