Public Works director John Grantland acknowledged an uptick in problems with discolored water due to the upset in the lines.

The problems have been reported from the city proper to St. Joe Beach.

“We ask people to please be patient,” Grantland said. “We are flushing and improvement is coming.”

City manager Jim Anderson said some households currently experiencing problems would see “dramatic improvement” as the Marvin Avenue section comes online.

As for the long-delayed report of a water study undertaken by CDM, designer of the city’s water plant, and Virginia Tech University, could be ready in a two weeks, Smallwood said, necessitating the workshop to discuss the findings and suggestions.

Commissioner William Thursbay expressed frustration with numerous delays in receiving the report and said the city needed answers as the “water is terrible.”
