Many around East Haven and New Haven and surrounding towns (including mine in Hamden) are troubled with the brown water coming through faucets and filling toilet bowls. I wish I had a GREAT solution...but I don't. My best advice is to:
- Conserve water usage
- Water grass and gardens an hour before sunrise or after the sun goes down
- Leave the car washing to a minimal
- Just off faucet when brushing teeth or washing dishes...
WTNH has already received many complaints and so has SCC Regional Water Company! Whats causing the discoloration is sediment being stirred up in the water mains!
If you have been using tab water for drinking water...while we are experiencing the heat wave in CT drink BOTTLED water!
