Canada residents get pink water

March 13, 2017

Residents of a small Canadian town have been seeing pink when they turn on the tap.

Onoway council has apologised to residents of the Alberta town after a water treatment plant turned the water supply pink.The colour was caused by a chemical used during routine flushing of the lines.

During normal line flushing and filter backwashing, a valve seems to have stuck open allowing the chemical, potassium permanganate, to get into the sump reservoir.

Mayor Dale Krasnow said there was no public health risk.

How long did the Canadians have pink water?

I rated this can't be true...I don't think it can at all

Oh wow. Pink water? I wonder what chemical the water got mixed with to make it pink. I wonder if they can get other chemicals to make other water colours. I think food colouring can turn food (and maybe drink) into different colours....
