Water main work might affect color

        MASON — Water users here may experience low pressure and discolored water Wednesday when construction crews move a 20-inch main on Mason-Montgomery Road to allow for road improvement.

        City Manager Scot Lahrmer said the water line will be out of service for about eight hours. That, coupled with recent high water demands because of the weather, is likely to result in “red water” throughout the system, he said.

        That is the result of fast-moving water loosening the coating inside the pipes. City water officials say red water is not hazardous to humans, but it can stain laundry.

        Mr. Lahrmer said the water line work will be done between 10 p.m. Wednesday and 6 a.m. Thursday to minimize the impact on residents.

        Relocation of the water main is part of the I&O Bridge replacement project.

        Water plant operators will be on duty throughout the evening to monitor and control water levels, he said. For information or questions regarding city water, call 573-3390 or 398-8010.
