Lightning strikes water treatment plant, may cause discolored water


SEELYVILLE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — The Seelyville Water Treatment Plant was struck by lightning on Thursday night and caused water production to stop.

Electrical repairs are needed on the plant but is producing water again, a news release sent Friday said. However, some customers may have discolored water over the next few days.

The treatment plant will be flushing hydrants to help with discolored water traveling through the water system. Although water may look as dark as tea or soda, the plant wants customers to know that it is safe to drink. They advise running cold for a few minutes if you get discolored water in your service line.
