The Mohawk Valley Water Authority says due to some distribution system upgrades, there has been some unexpected discolored water in portions of Utica, New Hartford and the Whitestown area.

Customers in those areas are advised to check their water before drinking or doing laundry and not use hot water if their cold water is discolored.

The MVWA is doing hydrant flushing to clear up any discolored water.
