Hydrant testing near your home may cause your tap water to be discolored. If discoloration is noticed, you should flow water from the faucets in your home until it becomes clear again.
Water discoloration is not a health threat. However, water should be monitored before washing clothes because discolored water may stain clothing.
Residents who live near area borders should also monitor their water on the days designated for testing in nearby areas.
