How often are dirt roads scraped?

The waters from the Savannah River and Clarks Hill Reservoir have concentrations of manganese and iron salts. Trace amounts of these minerals pass through the filter systems at our treatment facilities. When the water pressures in the pipes go up or down, the mineral deposits are pulled off the walls of the pipes, causing the water to have a brown or rusty orange color. A mineral deposit the size of a dime can cause water supply to be discolored for an entire house. This does not cause health problems. If your water is discolored you can call the Water Office at 706-863-6928, and the water mains in your area will be flushed.
