CLEVELAND, Ohio (WJW) – Cleveland Water reports that a problem with discolored water in the city’s east side communities should be fixed soon.

According to a press release, water leaving the Nottingham Treatment Plant is running clear.

They say aggressive flushing of water mains should get water to run clear at homes in the areas that were affected, including Beachwood, Cleveland Heights, Euclid, Gates Mills, Highland Heights, Hunting Valley, Lyndhurst, Mayfield Heights, Mayfield Village, Pepper Pike, Richmond Heights, and South Euclid.

The problem was first reported on Thursday.

Cleveland Water says if you’re still seeing discolored water, do these three things:

  • Clean the faucet aerator screens. They’ll need to be removed from all faucets.
  • Flush out your home’s cold water lines with the aerators off. Start at the faucet closest to where the water service line enters your home. Turn on the cold water as high as it goes and let it run for 3 minutes.
  • When the water is clear at the first faucet, turn on the cold water at all faucets in your home at the same time, including bathtubs and showers, starting in lowest floor of your home and working upward. Let the cold water run for 3 to 5 minutes and flush each toilet before turning the cold water off in the order you turned faucets on. After the cold water runs clear at each tap, discolored hot water can be flushed by running the hot water at each tap, or by draining the hot water tank from its bottom.
