GASTON COUNTY—Leaders in the Gaston County town of Dallas are asking for patience, as they replace the entire water pipe system that's caused some discolored water in certain areas.

Although officials said the discolored water poses no health risks, the modern upgrades will improve Dallas' aging water system. Dallas Public Works Director Bill Trudnak said the town's water is constantly tested and flushed, and checked when residents report cloudy water out of their taps.

Trudnak said despite that, mineral deposits can break off in water lines, especially in areas with pipes 80 to 100-years-old.

"We do the best we can with all the expertise we have here in the town. We keep up. We try to give people quality water every day," said Trudnak.

The water pipe replacements in Dallas will be completed by late 2013. ClientIP: UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
