Would you drink pink water out of your faucet? Residents in Coal Grove reported the pinkish purple water coming out of their taps Monday morning, leading village officials to initially warn locals not to drink the odd-colored liquid. Now, according to UPI.com, officials said the water is safe for drinking but could be damaging to clothes.
Officials later said the pink color came from a malfunction at the water treatment center that saw a large quantity of sodium permanganate end up in the water.
