July 16, 2021- Community members have been calling about the water tasting funny & discoloration.
This message is from the City of Duncan Public Works office -
due to the fire that was South of Duncan a couple days ago; there is a bit more chlorine and discoloration, this will subside in a couple (2) days.
Run your cold water taps to "refresh" the water line for 3-5 minutes or you can fill a water jug and let it sit for 20-30 min and the taste should go away.
Share this information with friends and family.
