Why does my water have a yellow tinge? What can I do about it?

There is a small amount of iron in the water and it becomes noticeable when it comes in contact with the air. There is no health risk from the discoloration. Very often after disruption of service the problem increases. We recommend running the cold water tap for a few minutes at a time until the water clears. If you are experiencing discolored water, avoid using your hot water as the rust can get into your hot water tank and discolor clothing in your washing machine. If you do experience rust in laundry, please contact us and we will provide you with a chemical agent to remove the rust.
