SHERMAN, TX ― Sherman residents may soon see some cloudy water when they turn on their taps, but the utilities department says there is no reason to worry.
The city is restoring pipelines to expand the water treatment system. This is the first time the 15-year-old Sherman pipelines will be evaluated.
The north and east parts of Sherman, which currently use surface water, will be switched to well water.
Utilities director Mark Gibson says that might cause some water discoloration, but Gibson assures the water will still be safe.
“The treatment plant will be out of surface water. The pipeline from Lake Texoma to the surface water will be taken out of service, and during this time the City of Sherman will be served completely by well water,” Gibson says.
The pipeline project will begin February 16th and should last about 2 weeks.

(Reuters) - U.S. health regulators on Friday approved Auxilium Pharmaceuticals Inc's Xiaflex injections to treat a condition that causes a painful curvature of the penis called Peyronie's disease. It marks the second U.S. approval for Xiaflex, which in 2010 received a Food and Drug Administration nod to treat Dupuytren's contracture - a condition in which hardening of the connective tissue collagen in the hands bends fingers toward the palm, leaving a patient unable to straighten their hand or use their fingers properly. Xiaflex is now the first FDA-approved non-surgical treatment option for men with Peyronie's disease who have a plaque buildup in the penis that results in a curvature deformity of at least 30 degrees upon erection, the agency said. Cowen and Co is forecasting that Peyronie's approval will add $100 million to annual Xiaflex sales by 2018.
As a society we've come to vehement consensus that drunk driving is unacceptable behavior. Yet we continue to tolerate sleepy driving. Many people who wouldn't dream of driving after one drink too many may very well get behind the wheel when feeling drowsy.
