Dirty water discovered in Thaynes Canyon
December 18, 2007
The Public Works Department is investigating complaints about discolored water in Thaynes Canyon and is urging people not to drink the dirty water.
According to Kathy Lundborg, the water manager, the calls started on Friday and increased the following day. Crews flushed the water lines, but the discolored water reappeared on Sunday, she says, adding that the discoloration is slowly disappearing.
She says sediment that built up on water pipes appears to be causing the discoloration.
To report discolored water, call 615-5300. The department’s investigation is continuing.
