Bright pink water flows from taps in Ohio

Would you drink this water ? Image Credit: YouTube / Click On Detroit
Coal Grove residents were left perplexed recently after their water supply turned a strange shade of pink.
The abnormally colored water started to appear in people's homes on Monday morning, prompting concern from locals and leaving officials scrambling to determine the cause.

It turned out that the unusual pink coloration was the result of a malfunction at the water treatment plant that had caused large amounts of sodium permanganate to be dumped in to the water.
According to plant operator Stephen Burchett, the pink water is safe to drink however it could stain clothing if it is used for washing.

The water has since been flushed out several times to try and get rid of the excess chemical however it may take a while for the pink coloration to completely disappear from the system.

In the meantime, most residents are likely to opt for bottled water instead.

Welcome to the placebo effect. Hey, whatever makes you feel good and doesn't harm anyone, I say do it. Personally, I feel just fine drinking my tap water as it comes out of the tap.

I add this in my fish tank very often to kill harmful bacteria. It is safe for fish and to drink.

You are one of the smart ones aren't ya? You do realize that you can go for 20 years in poor health before you die, and you can go for 20 years in excellent health before you die. Right?

Yeah I was about to say that my girlfriend is a licensed enviromental engineer, she literally designs water filtration systems for cities and towns. She always says that tap water in the West is really safe and basically the same as bottled water.  The only thing she gets sketch about is if it is a house with really old pipes she says to let the water run for a sec before drinking it so any residue in the pipes gets washed out.  And that if the water comes from a ground well it should be tested for aresinic levels.
