New Albany residents and business owners have recently seen a light or dark brown discoloration in the water. This discoloration is not harmful to drink or use unless the water is brown and laundry is done. In that case, the laundry might turn brown as well. Harold Smith, manager of New Albany Light, Gas and Water, said, “Anytime there is a drastic change in normal water flow, a hydrant gets turned on, or someone cuts a water line, it creates a change in the flow of water and stirs up the iron within the pipes and creates the brown tint that is seen.”
