Marshfield (OnFocus) – The Marshfield Utilities water crew is currently working on an emergency main break in the 600 block of S. Apple Ave. If you live close to this area you may experience a water outage. This outage will last approximately 6 hours.
During this time there is a possibility of discolored water in the extended area. The discoloration is caused by iron that naturally accumulates in our water system. It is normal, but it does stain clothing! MU advises not to wash any clothing during this time. Discoloration usually clears up by running your cold water through the faucet for 2 to 5 minutes or until it clears up. If your water does not clear up after several minutes, please call the MU office at 715-387-1195.
