CLEVELAND -- Residents in the eastern suburbs of Cleveland continue to experience discolored water as crews work to flush out the system.

The discoloration of the water is a result of manganese, a naturally occurring element in the lake.

The water is safe to drink and is not harmful if ingested.

There is no boil alert in effect.

Customers whose water still has a yellowish tint should refrain from doing laundry, especially of lighter-shaded clothes.

The following suburbs are being impacted:
