Residents all across Muskogee have reported brown water coming out of their taps this summer.
The city of Muskogee is aware of the issue and has a simple explanation.
“The brown water is caused from higher water demand in summer,” said Tera Shows, city spokeswoman. “The increased demand forces us to increase pressure at water plant to meet the demand and turns loose sediment in the pipes.”
Fighting the brown water can help both you and the city, so Shows recommends everyone experiencing brown water contact the city to report it so crews can come out to your address and flush the lines there. It’s important, she said, to give the city a specific address so they know which pipes and lines need attention.
If you have brown water, the number to call is 918-684-6333, the city’s Public Works department.
