(AUGUSTA,GA) Dirty water again in Augusta has some residents boiling mad.

The cloudy H-2-O started showing up in the Terrace Manor  and other areas  yesterday afternoon and it was still not clear  at some homes by mid  morning.

Those  who called and complained were told it was a valve issue that was being repaired, but some feel the city should have done more to warn customers.

” It has been a long period of time since this water has been cloudy so my thing is some one should have been informing us we should have gotten a phone call a warning on TV anything,

The Utilities Department says  the value problem stirred  sediment  in  the lines, causing the cloudy water  but there was no bacterial contamination  and no boil water advisory was needed.
