Richlands Residents Seeing Red In Their Water

Red-colored water flowing out of your pipes is not harmful, that from the Onslow Water & Sewer Authority.

Residents and businesses primarily in downtown Richlands are seeing the problem.

ONWASA says the discoloration is due to ongoing work in the area. A large water draw caused sedimentation in old pipes to be pulled through the system.

Wednesday morning ONWASA will be redirecting the water flow to help pull the discolored water out of the pipes.

While the water is safe to drink, the water system suggests that people avoid doing laundry until the system is completely flushed.
