If you notice discoloration and rust particles in your water supply during this process, turn your faucet on Cold and let the water run until clear. Running an outside faucet is best.  The discolored water is caused by iron and manganese, two common minerals in water that have settled into the watermains.  The water is only discolored.  IT IS SAFE.  It is advisable to refrain from washing clothes during this period if possible.
