**Notice **

Dear Water Customers,

If you are noticing a discoloration associated with your water, we would like to sincerely apologize for this issue, and although it can be aesthetically concerning, there are no health risks. The issue is a result of higher than normal iron (Fe) and manganese (Mn) levels in the source water of the KY River, following the latest rain event and flooding.

Iron and manganese are naturally occurring in clays and soils, and in their dissolved state are colorless. When the dissolved Fe and Mn are exposed to air or chemical oxidants (chlorine), they can precipitate or convert to an insoluble form, thus the appearance of color in the distribution system.

This will most notably be observed in bath tubs, toilets, hot water heaters and low use areas. Changes to our treatment process are already underway to remove these elements at the treatment plant, before it reaches the distribution system. Some customers may or may not notice the issue at all. However, we are working diligently to alleviate the issue and we expect improvements very soon.
