Clearing Discolored Water

If you are experiencing discolored water, open all the cold water taps in the house to create a high volume flush.  Before beginning the flush, put all filtration devices in bypass including water softeners.    Start upstairs and open the tub/shower faucets and sinks.  Move downstairs and open the kitchen and bathroom sinks.  Let the water run for approximately 5-10 minutes.  This should clear the discolored water.    **It is important to open cold water taps only.**

Changes to Emergency Notifications

Due to time lag issues with our email alert system, the CPWA will be utilizing Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/Clifton-Park-Water-Authority-109175848023202) and Twitter (@CPWater1) as the primary means of emergency notification going forward.  Customers are encouraged to follow us on either, or both of these sites.  Emergency notices will still be posted on our website at www.cpwa.org, as well.  Email alerts will be used primarily for non-emergency notifications.
