Plattsburgh Water Woes

Many homeowners and residents in the City of Plattsburgh have been dealing with discolored water over the past month. While city officials insist that the water is safe and OK to use, it’s left many in the community concerned and frustrated. The City’s Environmental Manager, Jonathan Ruff, says they’ve tested for bacteria and are monitoring the chlorine which keeps the water disinfected. All the tests have come back showing the water is safe for consumption. Ruff says whatever caused it resulted in a three to four-inch layer of sediment in the storage tank, which he says will be flushed out along with water lines throughout the city to try to solve the problem.
