Water Discoloration

If you are experiencing yellow to light brown water do not be alarmed. It is caused by manganese in the water. It is a natural element found in the ponds and its levels are higher at this time of the year causing the discoloration. The water is not harmful and is safe to use. 
 

 
Pembina Valley Water Cooperative (PVWC) is working at reducing this issue and clear it up. 
 
If your water is yellow to light brown there is no need to be concerned. If you water is a dark brown colour please call our office to let us know at 204-746-7300.
 
Thank you for your patience while this is being looked after. Have a great weekend!
