Rust scales can be seen on the inner surface of a pipe leading from the water meter to Ronda Rafidi’s Sharon Avenue home in northeast Fresno. That service line was dug up and replaced in July as part of the city’s investigation of discolored water. Rafidi says she started noticing discoloration of her water back in 2004. That’s the same year that Fresno’s Northeast Surface Water Treatment Plant began producing drinking water in that part of the city.
