Water Discoloration

All members east of Wortham Bend and from Oak Grove Loop northward may be experiencing a slight yellow/orange tint to your water. This is due to minerals inside the pipe breaking loose and coming down line. Yesterday plant 2 broke. We routed water from plant 7 to compensate. By doing so, the normal direction of flow was reversed. When this happens tiny minerals break loose and cause the water to appear yellow/orange. We are currently flushing the lines and trying to repair plant 2. The water is safe drink. We take samples per T.C.E.Q. regulations. We have had no bad samples. Sorry for any inconvenience.
