Water Discoloration Notice Issued by WR/LJ Rural Water Systems

Water Discoloration Notice:

WR/LJ has received several calls from customers that have noticed a yellowish or light brown tint in the water coming from their tap. We have been in contact with the Oglala Sioux Rural Water Supply System (OSRWSS) where the water is treated and delivered through the north and south coreline system. Operators with WR/LJ and OSRWSS have checked chlorine residuals and have sent several samples to the State Health Lab. Although the water is slightly discolored, the sample results confirm the water is safe. Please keep in mind that laundry, particularly white clothing, may be susceptible to staining while the discoloration is occurring. Operators with both systems will continue to investigate the cause of the discoloration, continue to take samples throughout the system, and plan to flush pipelines where the discoloration is occurring. We apologize for any inconveniences and appreciate your patience. Again, we will continue to monitor, sample and flush until the water clears up. Please contact the WR/LJ office at 605-669-2931 if you have any questions or concerns regarding this matter.
