What can I do if my water is discolored?

Sometimes during fire hydrant testing, people experience a temporary discoloration due to sediment in the water lines. In most cases, running the tap for a minute will resolve the problem. The Fire Department will publish and announce on the radio when hydrant testing occurs, so people can plan ahead and avoid issues with the water discoloration.
