COHOES, N.Y. (NEWS10) – The City of Cohoes says it will be flushing the city-wide water system after some areas are experiencing brown water.

The city will also be adding new chemicals to clear up the water.

The flushing will begin Tuesday night at 11 p.m. to reduce disturbances to residents.

Officials are advising residents after the flushing to run the water before drinking or doing laundry to be sure it’s clean. The city says it may take a few hours between the flush and water clearing up.
