Clare upgrade of water plant may cause discolored water

CLARE — The city of Clare is in the process of upgrading its water plant. As part of this, it is replacing its filters starting Wednesday.

In order to do this and provide water to the community, the water plant is going to pump directly from the wells into the system and tower, according to Webster County Emergency Management Coordinator Scott Forbes.

Chlorine and phosphate will continue to be applied to ensure proper disinfection and water quality will be monitored.

From now through the end of June, residents may experience discolored water.
