Miner water may look different, but still safe to drink

MINER, MO (KFVS) - The water in Miner may look a little different the next few days, but Harold Tarrants with the Miner Public Works Dept. assures everyone it's still safe to drink.

The discoloration will come after city workers begin flushing fire hydrants throughout the Scott County town Thursday and Friday.  Tarrants said the action is routine maintenance, but he did advise customers to be aware of the discoloration and advised everyone not to wash any light-colored clothing for the time being.

Tarrants thinks the water could be clear again sometime Sunday.
