Carson water supply back to normal
January 30th, 2013 by Ric Hanson
City officials in Carson say a problem they experienced on Tuesday which resulted in cloudy or discolored water, has been resolved. On Tuesday, the City said mechanical failure at the water treatment plant was causing a higher concentration of potassium permanganate to exist in the water. Since the initial announcement, the City gone through the processes necessary to make sure water coming out of the taps is clean and clear, but some discolored water may remain in private lines for a short time.
The City recommends that any resident currently experiencing discolored water, should flush all of your private lines until the water runs clear. Carson’s maintenance supervisor also recommends that you run a cycle through your washing machine to clear it of any remaining colored water. Once the water is clear it is fine to drink.
