Discolored Water – November 16, 2017

Water Update: Last night a utility contractor hit a water main on the south side of Archdale, creating a large water leak. Unfortunately, water was pumped from the PTRWA (the City’s water provider) at a fast rate for approximately 15 minutes until the main could be shut down. This sudden rush may have stirred the water up again.  Some residents may see discolored water for a period of time as a result.

This water is safe…i.e. it will not make you sick. However, washing clothes is not recommended if you have observed water discoloration in your home.

PTRWA and City of Archdale staff will be working as long as necessary to ensure the water returns to its normal clear appearance. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and will continue to do everything in our power to resolve this issue.
