OKLAHOMA CITY – Residents in the areas of Moore and southern Oklahoma City were concerned about dirty water coming out of their faucets Sunday.

The City turned on a new main line, causing discoloration in the water, according to Debbie Regan with Oklahoma City utilities department.


When the new line was opened, it picked up water particles, causing discoloration.

The City opened fire hydrants and flushed the main line to clear the water, according to Regan.

The utilities department assures residents that the water is not harmful.

If you are still seeing discolored water in your home, let the water run until it clears.
