Brown Water Complaints August 2021

DCWC has noticed the formation of iron precipitate in it’s treated water and has received several calls from customers noticing the same in recent days. Weeks of intensive surface water runoff coupled with higher than normal chlorine demand (used for disinfection) have exacerbated the issue. Iron may be noticeable as a slight reddish brown tint in fixtures, tubs, and toilets.

The water is meeting and exceeding state drinking water standards and has been properly disinfected. A simple sediment filter installed at the point of use (house) would be sufficient to remove residual iron. Water quality should return to normal seasonal conditions once raw water turbidity & chlorine demand diminish in the coming days.

Any further questions should be directed to Anthony Ramsey at 970-626-3889.
