Because of iron deposits that remain in the water distribution system and regular system maintenance at the water plant, it is possible that small, temporary pockets of brown water are possible for residents. If anyone experiences brown water, it is important to let the village know right away so hydrant flushing can take place to help with the problem.
If you experience brown water in your home or business, please click the yellow “Submit a Request” button at the bottom of the Village of Ripley home page and report your address and the time you experienced brown water. This service is available on desktops and mobile phones. The report will go directly to the village administrator and the issue will be addressed as soon as possible.
