Occasionally, water becomes discolored after hydrant flushing. If this happens, run your cold water tap for a few minutes until the water clears. If it doesn’t clear the first time, wait a few minutes and run the water again. You should avoid washing clothes until the water clears. Afterwards, if you notice a change in water flow, it may be necessary to clean your sink faucet screen of trapped sediment.
The brown or discolored water, caused by rust or sediment build-up, is not harmful to use or drink according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency. Ingesting rust from a water source does not present adverse health effects.
The Topeka Water Department personnel are on call 24/7. For problems that occur after hours please call 260-593-3407.
