Lucas Gregory, Ph.D., assistant director of TWRI, spoke to Bryan-College Station, TX-local news station KBTX-TV3’s Donnie Tuggle on February 18. Gregory talked about the brown and discolored water coming out of pipes as things started to thaw, saying it was not something to be worried about.
“Discolored water is not terribly uncommon,” he said, explaining that numerous situations can cause discolored water. Especially after the low water pressure events like those caused by the freeze, sediment in the pipes can be stirred up and result in discolored water.
