SUPPLY DISCOLORATION

February 2024 -- The City is continuing the filter rehabilitation project at our Water Treatment Plant that is intended to alleviate discoloration in the water coming from the faucets of some residents. We wrapped up work in early February on the third of the three oldest (and most inefficient) filters at the plant. Work to replace the filter media in the last two of the five filters undergoing rehabilitation is next. We apologize for the situation and are working diligently to correct it.
