BIG SPRING - Removing the dirt from the Big Spring water supply requires a special work crew.

Yet again, new tests show there's too much dirt in the city's supply.

Sludge has built up at the water treatment plant.

But this week, a company is coming in to take a look at the problem.

They're expected to clean out the sludge this week or next.

In the meantime, we're told the water is safe to drink, even though the dirt level is above state standards.
