Hendersonians Report Discolored Water

Update 5:40 P.M. Tuesday:

The City Clerk, Esther McCrackin, has issued a press release on behalf of the City of Henderson.  It states:

“Customers who receive water via the Kerr Lake Regional Water System may be currently experiencing discolored water from their taps.  The City believes this is a result of the Kerr Lake Regional Water plant experiencing manganese from the surface water which was removed but was captured in the remaining sludge and is now showing up in the distribution system.

“With the interaction of chlorine, it is making its way through the distribution system, including Henderson customers and also customers of the City of Oxford and Warren County.  Based on action taken at the plant as well as additional flushing within the system to take place, the problem with discolored water should be resolved by the end of the week.  Should you continue to observe discolored water after this time, please call the Kerr Lake Regional Water Plant at 252-438-2141.

“It is important to note that the water is safe to drink.”

Update 2:15 P.M. Tuesday:

According to Esther McCrackin with the City of Henderson:

“Minor changes in the weather and water chemistry have created a discolored water issue.  The water is safe to drink and the City anticipates the issue will be resolved by the end of the week.”
