Recommendation for Discolored Water
TGW has been actively flushing pipelines during construction.  Sediment can get stirred up during these activities which may discolor the water.  When this happens, the water is still safe.  However the water maybe unappealing, so we recommend that you run the water from the outside hose closest to your water meter then indoor faucets until it clears.  You may also want to monitor your filters if you have one.  We understand construction can be an inconvenience and appreciate your patience.
Thank You.

TGW does not ask or demand cash on past due notices.
