A large accumulation of rust has broken loose inside a water main, valve or hydrant and made itself known in your faucet. If you observe this phenomenon, don’t feel threatened from a health aspect if you or someone else happened to drink it, but do these two things. 1; stop using the water because it will stain practically everything it touches. 2; call us. The sooner we know about the problem, the sooner we can correct it. A service representative will most likely visit your home and ask that you run water through your faucets for a brief time to bring in fresh water after we have flushed out our water mains.
