SAN TAN VALLEY, AZ (CBS5) -

A San Tan Valley woman who complained about the quality of her tap water in June is now being sued by the utility company.

Emily Hughes told CBS 5 News that her water was murky and yellow at the start of the summer, and had little to no water pressure.

Now, CBS 5 News media partner Independent News Media reports that Johnson Utilities has filed a defamation complaint against Hughes.

Hughes said she is looking for a lawyer and that she's "not freaking out yet."
