Has your water been shut off for a time? You can call the water company/ authority, they might be digging, doing work. Let it run until it's clear,call them.

If your tank is older than 10 years it's an accumulation of rust and I dare say it my be ready to spring a leak.

It coul be your water pipes,,,,rusted or it could be a town thing. Call your water dept to make sure it is not something you have no control over. Sometimes town flushing will do this..

My first thought would be it is time for a new water heater. It could be rusting out.

It has to be that either your pipes are rusted or inside of tank is.. If you have well water and their is light rust in those pipes could be an issue as well. By Draining it you may see sediment that will better answer your question once all the floating particles settle. Good Luck.
