Why does the water look discolored sometimes?

Iron and mineral deposits can accumulate in a water main. The sediment normally lay dormant in the water main unless an interruption of flow disturbs the material. Typical interruptions can be caused by a fire in the area, water main breaks or department hydrant flushing.
