Letter: No solution yet for brown water

I’ve had brown water in my home off and on for many years [“Water? Unclear,” News, April 11].

The brown color seems to be pronounced in the summer and makes it challenging to clean my bathroom tile grout every week, even though we wipe it dry after every shower because of areas of browning grout. I also have had brown spots on my clothes after washing.

I have complained about this to my water provider, New York American Water, to no avail. I certainly hope something is done.
