Drinking Water In Town Turned Bright Pink

The tap water in a small Alberta town turned bright pink this week after a problem at the water treatment plant. Residents of Onoway, a town of 1,000 located an hour west of Edmonton, noticed the color change on Monday evening.

The mayor apologized for the pink water on Tuesday, saying the town could have done a better job interacting with frightened residents.

 “We are still assessing what exactly happened but it appears a valve may have stuck allowing the potassium permanganate to get into our sump reservoir and thereby into the Town’s water distribution system,” Onoway Mayor Dale Krasnow said on the town’s official website.
