Pullman: College Hill Possible Water Discoloration


Residents of College Hill may have discolored water. According to Kevin Gardes Public Works Director, the city is replacing water valves in the area. Often times when dealing with the valves and changing the flow of water it kicks up sediments. Gardes tells KLEW News that the water is fine to drink and the sediments are not harmful. The sediments come from water deep down that is pumped up from wells. Simply running your tap water for a few seconds should allow the sediments to wash out. However, if you notice a brown color in your hot water for a longer period of time Gardes said this could be a sign that your hot water heater needs to be cleaned. Construction will continue into Thursday. If you have any questions or concerns call the City of Pullman Public Works Department.
