Discolored Water Is Safe to Drink, Crews Working to Clear

Maysville Utilities has recently performed work at the drinking water reservoir on Edgemont Road. A pump that circulates water from the reservoir to the elevated storage tanks was replaced. The installation of this pump was necessary to maintain our drinking water supply.

Unfortunately, when the pump was installed, it has stirred up sediment in some of the water mains causing residents to see discolored water and sediment on Edgemont Road and Edgecliff Drive.

This was UNFORSEEN and not expected to occur. We are aware of the issue and we are flushing hydrants to clear up the discolored water. It is safe to drink and there is no boil water advisory. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused residents.
