As a result of the testing, a consumer may see water that is cloudy caused by these higher flows. If you as a customer perceive cloudy water, please contact plant staff who will dispatch staff to flush the system in your area.

Inside your home, you may also be advised to flush by turning on water in a bathtub, for example. Please make sure drains are open prior to turning on the water.

Water quality concerns are limited to appearance only at this time. Flushing until water is clear would be the recommended resolution.

If conditions arise that warrant a change in this recommendation, staff will immediately notify affected customers accordingly.  

If you have concerns, please contact the Danville water treatment plant at (859) 238-1241.
