Water Resources Department correcting discoloration problem

Clermont County Water Resources Department is aware of discolored water in a portion of our water distribution system. The discoloration may be described as a light brownish/yellow tint or the color of diluted tea.

This is a result of manganese being oxidized during the disinfection process at the water treatment plant. Consumption of the discolored water is safe. We recognize that the water is not aesthetically pleasing and are actively working on correcting the problem. However, even after the disruption at the treatment plant is corrected, it will still likely take 24-48 hours to pass through our distribution system.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
