“OXNARD, Calif. – Oxnard residents may notice discolored tap water starting Monday (March 30) as the city tests fire hydrants.
The water is safe to drink, according to notices mailed to residents, though the appearance could be “unpleasant.”
The high mineral content could also stain laundry, officials warn. They advise those who notice discolored water to turn off faucets and wait 20-30 minutes until the supply settles.
