Dirty Water

Fairmont, WV

#1 Dec 19, 2010
Does anybody else have the problem of dirty water? My neighbors and I for what seems like years have water coming into our house that leaves the toilet with a film. The toilent tank also has a film or scum. If you fill your bathtub up and then just drain it it looks like somebody has taken a bath in it. We have complained several times and were told there was nothing wrong with the water. We get a thing in the mail saying if the levels of contaminants in the water are safe of not. Almost always it says everything is ok. I believe the last one or the one before that said that it wasn't.

What is the deal here? I remember when I was a kid we drank water straight from the tap. Now I boil anything that I use for cooking or cleaning. Since we pay a water bill I would like to know why we get a bunch of b.s. when we complain. Also we have even been told that nobody has complained and we all got together and everybody said they have complained.

Anybody else have issues?

I lived in gypsy and I had the same problem. Ours looked like mud coming thru sometimes and it would even stain our whites. We came to realize that if there was any fire hydrant use in the area this would cause the dirty water. Moved out of there 6 months ago and don't miss the muddy water. Only thing I can suggest is complain and get your neighbors to complain and call the health department. Water pipes run under West fork and gypsy sewage goes in west fork. It's ur right to have clean water.
