[ARCHIVED] Water Main Improvements - Possible Discolored Water


Today, January 9th, the City’s contractor, Reybold Construction, is performing water main improvements on Briar Lane and Wilson Road as part of the City Water Main Improvement Project.

Customers in the vicinity may experience discolored or cloudy water throughout the day or early evening hours. Public Works and Water Resources crews will be monitoring the situation and will remain in the area until water quality returns to normal and is flowing clear. If you experience discoloration, run cold water in a bathtub or basin sink until clear. Residents are advised to postpone laundering, dish washing and showering between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. today to avoid discolored water and possible water pressure fluctuations.

If your laundry becomes stained, keep the clothes wet and rewash with "Rust Rover" powder. Rust Rover packets are available by calling the Public Works and Water Resources Department at 302-366-7000.
