Why is my water a different color, smell or fizzy?

Routine maintenance and the addition of safe chemicals to City water can result in discoloration and “fizzy” water. This water is still safe to drink and wash with. We closely monitor our water supply 24 hours a day. If you have further concerns regarding your drinking water, please call 801-483-6045 and staff will be sent to flush additional hydrants in your area.
