Went out for supper last night, I ordered water to drink when it was given to me it looked like week tea. Well this started us talking PAUL SHAW the city water person once again can not fix our water problem. What was no supprise to me and several others is that I was told last night that he will not drink city water? What dose that say about our water supply should we be drinking it???

There is always rust in the water lines which over time will leach off and in turn give you yellow/ red water. I'm sure he doesn't drink the water because he knows what is allowed to be a standard for purified water. If you knew you wouldn't drink it either but I know it's not going to kill me so ill drink it. Btw in your comments you said "week" you should have said "weak" and "dose" is actually "does". It just sounds better when someone bitches.

Cant even take a clean bath the water is already dirty? Not a good sign when the water department manager will not drink the water he supplys to the city, are you sure about that? Do we need to boil the water before we drink it?

We have the same problem at our house we have been drinking bottle water. Seems we pay a high price for dirty water? Had a leak outside my house in the street for three months maybe that why our water bill is high?

When someone has a fire..the fire dept uses fire hydrants..once a hydrant is open it stirs up alot of water and iron..its not rust just calcium build up..some of you would b surprised what your personal water line looks like inside..especially galvanize pipe..thats what I had before switching to pvc..I was surprised..not only that..I have just a little bit more water pressure..so what sayin is just that sometimes you dont know who's cutting a fire hydrant on..

I have a triple filtration system i had installed. First it goes through a pressure reducer then to the first filter. That first filter i can easily see what it catches. Was in that room the other day and a darn leaf was swirling around in it.
