Ice makers, water dispensers and any other beverage dispenser connected to the affected municipal supplies may experience deterioration in the quality (and ultimately quantity) of the product. For example, given the expected level of suspended matter in the turbid water, most commercial filtration systems will be overwhelmed and are designed to shut down when the filter medium gets clogged. If the aesthetic characteristics of the ice, water or beverage are critical to your business you many need to arrange for alternate sources of clear water. In addition you may want to disconnect or turn off water dispensing machines, drinking fountains, ice/syrup machines, produce misters, ice-making units and soda machines until the turbidity event has passed. You will then need to flush your systems out and replace filters according to manufacturer's instructions.
