Each day, the GVRD tests drinking water for cloudiness, or turbidity. Cloudy water is created when fine particles like sediment or organic matter wind up in the reservoirs through heavy rainfall. Other causes of turbidity can be construction or changing of pipes, high water flows due to a fire or flusher truck filling, or high flows due to hot weather.
