Durham Water System Gets Spring Cleaning

Posted May 4, 1997 12:00 a.m. EDT

— The city water system in Durham will undergo a form of "spring cleaning" for the next few days, and it might alter water color.

City officials plan to flush the system from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. starting Sunday night and continuing until May 8.

Residents may notice that their tap water is brownish in color during those hours. And there might also be a decrease in water pressure during the flushing operation.
