Taft 7-12 Middle & High School posted on their web page that there is an “issue with the water pipes.” During the morning of January 10th City crews performed maintenance on the High School’s water meter. To work on the meter, the water was diverted through the School bypass line which stirred up sediment that settled in this line. This caused the temporary discoloration of the water.
The meter has been repaired and the water was routed back to the normal, main line. School officials have informed the City that the color of the water has returned to normal. City crews continue to monitor the water and flow.
This repair only affected the High School.
