CLAREMORE, Okla. — There is no end in sight for the muddy, rocky water Claremore residents experienced over the years. There is a new effort the city is taking to cleanup the system.
On Thursday, Claremore crews began assessing water valves and fire hydrants. Every Thursday and Friday will be dedicated to the project.
The purpose is to determine the water system's condition and identify where improvements are needed.
They say, the process could cause unpreventable corrosion deposits and mineral scale to be stirred up in the water, causing discoloration and sediment.
Households experiencing changes in the water are suggested to flush lines by flushing toilets and running all faucets for several minutes.
If the water does not change, residents should contact the Public Works Department at 918-341-0457, ext. 286 between the hours of 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. or the after-hours line at 918-341-1212.
The project is expected to last six to 12 months.
