My water looks yellow. Why is it that way and is it still safe?

During normal operation, natural mineral sediment like iron collects in the water lines. When events occur such as line repairs or flushing of water lines to remove this sediment, your tap water may be temporarily affected. The water is still safe. To clear the lines, open the taps in your house and let them run until the water is clear again. It is best to avoid doing laundry if the water appears yellowish but if you do and fabrics become discolored, a product called “Rust Out” may be helpful in removing discoloration. Please contact Municipal District Services (MDS) to report any water quality issues at (281) 290-6503.
