The water in Pittsville looks like it may be getting a little clearer.

Town manager Joe Mangini has hired a new company that supplies chemical for water treatment to help with the discoloration of the town’s water supply.

He told WBOC that it turned out defective chemicals the town had been using before were the source of the problem.

But the television station reports that some of the local residents want more transparency on how the town officials have handled the situation.
