COTTONWOOD WATER AND SANITATION DISTRICT

President, Board of Directors
As a result of the redevelopment and construction at the old King Soppers, the water supplied to homes in the Cottonwood community may experience a temporary yellow or brown discoloration in the water. This discoloration consists of naturally occurring harmless materials (primarily iron and manganese). These minerals settle in the water pipelines during winter months when usage is low. This increase in flow and pressure will stir up these minerals and can take several hours for the water to clear. There are other times throughout the year that you may experience discolored water, such as in the spring when irrigation systems are being turned on at homes and commercial sites.
What should I do if my water is discolored?
Please notify the District so that we are alerted to what addresses are being affected. If this discoloration occurs, simply run only COLD water faucet for about 5 minutes and you should see that the water becomes clear. (Note that because running the hot water rather than cold water pulls from the hot water heater, the water may not run clear.) If the water doesn’t clear up after 5 minutes, wait a few hours to allow the District to flush the lines, and then try running the cold water again.
It is recommended that you do NOT wash clothes at this time in order to avoid stained clothing – especially whites. Please contact us if you ahve any questions: 303-792-9509.
