What should I do when I experience discoloration of my water.

You should contact the Bristol Water Department to see if we can determine the cause. After the situation has been corrected, you should run your cold water faucet to clear the water. You should refrain from washing clothes during this time. However, if you do have a load of laundry in your machine and this happens when the water has cleared try adding a 1/4 cup of cream of tarter with your regular laundry detergent. If you haven't dried your clothes this should help remove the discoloration.
