At times it is necessary for the City to flush the water system, which may cause a disturbance of mineral build-up created within the water mains over time. As disturbance occurs, these minerals temporarily cloud the water, making it look dirty. The water is still safe to drink, but it can be a bit unsightly. To resolve, simply run your tap water until the color goes away.
Cloudy water can also indication that air has entered the water lines and is no more than highly oxygenated water (lots of tiny bubbles). It will settle rapidly and is quite safe to drink. If you have any questions call the City of Farmington Laboratory at 505-325-6953.
