During this production time, customers in the area may experience periods of low water pressure and/or water discoloration due to the increased water usage.

Customers who do experience discoloration are advised to run the cold water for approximately 1 to 3 minutes to allow the lines to clear.

Temporary discoloration does not indicate that water is unsafe to drink, but customers should avoid washing clothes with discolored water as staining can occur.

If after 5 minutes the water does not run clear, customers can contact CFPUA’s Water Quality Unit by calling (910) 332-6738.
