The City of Gold Bar’s Well 4 ran at an increased level last night causing it to churn up the natural silt causing the water to appear cloudy and/or murky brown. The water was then pumped into our water mains. Crews have been working throughout the night flushing hydrants to clear the water mains. If you are experiencing cloudy/murky brown looking water, we ask that you run cold water only through your faucets until cleared; this should take approximately 15 – 30 minutes.
The city will continue to monitor the situation and flush hydrants as needed. This cloudy/murky water does not pose a health hazard.
