Discolored water in Pleasant Grove? The city says it’s safe to use.
PLEASANT GROVE, UT — Pleasant Grove City officials said that drinking water in the city is safe, even though it may be discolored.
In a Facebook post on Thursday morning, the city announced crews had been monitoring water quality overnight and flushing the water system of sediment. They said the trouble began after heavy rain fell in the Battle Creek area earlier this week and compromised a water line.
On Wednesday the city provided this map showing where residents may be dealing with discolored water:
City officials said they found sediment but no further evidence of compromised water. They took water samples as a precaution, however, the samples won’t provide more information for 24 hours.
Pleasant Grove officials asked residents to run their tub faucets for three minutes to flush their pipes. If you see discolored water, they ask that you call Public Works at 801-785-2941.
