I have discolored water. What should I do?

If you are experiencing discolored water, a city department may be working in your area. We recommend that you avoid drinking, washing clothes, or cooking with it until it clears up.

Check every 30 minutes to see if it has cleared up by running the water for 30 seconds. If the problem persists, immediately contact the Water Department at (586) 759-9200.
