Residents experience brown water issue, no boil water advisory in effect
JOHNSTOWN- Residents in the local area including Cambria City, Prospect, Lower Yoder and East Conemaugh have experienced brown water coming from their faucets since Sunday.
Greater Johnstown Water Authority Manager Michael Kerr said there is no boil water advisory at this time.
Kerr said the brown water is a result of having to pump more water to keep storage tanks full.
He said they are doing this in order to keep up with the leaks that are occurring due to the extreme temperature fluctuations.
Kerr added the Water Authority is in the process of fixing the issue.
