Why do I have brown water?
Water usually looks brown when there is maintenance being done on the lines, when a fire hydrant is broken or there is a break in a water line. Usually the water is brown for a short time and you should not drink it until it clears. You can speed up the process of removing the brown water from your pipes by running all your faucets for a few minutes. If the water is still not clear, then do the same thing again every half hour. The problem should go away within 2-4 hours.
