Spring runoff and turbidity (discoloured water) occurs annually April to June. Water that looks cloudy or brownish was expected in spring every year prior to the Water Treatment Plant construction and it was recommended that household filters (if any) were monitored often. The Turbidity levels (Water Quality) were reported daily. Since the Water Treatment Plant came online, the turbidity remains low and water quality is Good.
