Special to

Earlier Friday, a hydrant in the Pine Forest subdivision on East Heart Pine and Planters Drive was flowed for testing. Sediment at the bottom of this water main was stirred up and caused some residents to experience cloudy water when they turned on their spigots.

City of Statesville Water Maintenance crews cleared the line, but some customers may experience cloudy water when they turn their spigot on for the first time since testing.

The city asks residential customers to do the following if they experience cloudy water:

Please run the cold bathtub water for NO LONGER THAN 5 MINUTES. (This will help clear out the service line to the house). If the water doesn’t clear, please call the Police non-emergency number at 704-878-3406 and a Water Maintenance employee will follow up.

The Pine Forest subdivision includes the following roads: Carolinian Drive, History Lane, West and East Heart Pine Lane and Planters Drive.
