This does not mean that the water is contaminated, but that the possibility exists.
Once pressure returns, there is the possibility that some discolored water or air could be present in the lines.
Customers are advised to run cold water for 5-10 minutes or until water is clear.
Properties in the affected areas are receiving this notification via the COA automated system or door hangers.
