You may have cloudy water in Avon

KUSA - You may see cloudy and discolored water in Avon Tuesday due to pre-work on the Basecamp development, the town announced.

The development is under construction on the northeast corner of Avon Road and Highway 6. Crews are extending a water main to the public water distribution system.

The town says people in these areas should see the discrepancy in water:
• Alpine Bank
• Avon Center
• Avon Public Library
• Avon Recreation Center
• Avon Town Hall
• Avon Fire Station
• The Seasons
• The Sheraton
• The Westin
• The White River Center
• The Wyndham

Crews are also flushing fire hydrants in order to minimize the effect of the cloudy water, which they say will come from stirred-up sediment.

Because of the flushing, residents may experience low water pressure and see water flowing onto the streets.

People who experience cloudy or discolored water are asked to run their faucets, tubs or an outside spigot. Nevertheless, the town says the sediment will not impact the safety of the water.

The appearance is expected to return to normal by 11:30 a.m. Tuesday.
