Residents started complaining about the water which suddenly changed color, on Monday night, CBC reports.
In a Facebook post, the CBC reports, town authorities said that after several hours, the color change was caused by a “stuck valve,” which allowed potassium permanganate, a chemical disinfectant into the water. The disinfectant is used to treat water and “residents were never at risk” the statement said.
“Could the town have done a better job of communicating what was going on yesterday to our community — absolutely, without a doubt,” Mayor Dale Krasnow said on the town’s website, according to the CBC. “We do apologize for that.”
