Some areas in Herriman were found to have higher chlorine levels in their drinking water than normal this week.

Though the chlorine levels were elevated, the still remained within the standard for healthy drinking water systems, the city has stated.

The city is working with the Salt Lake County Health Department to fix the problem by flushing the water systems, according to a Facebook post.

"If you'd like to speed up the process, you may consider flushing your home's system by turning on each tap for a couple of minutes to help move the water through the system," a city Facebook post states.

Water levels were already back to normal throughout much of the city on Thursday, the city stated.

"If you continue to notice a higher concentration of Chlorinated water we again suggest you flush your home's system to ensure the plumbing, like a hot water heater, is no longer housing the higher concentrated water," a Facebook post states.
