Bright pink water comes out of taps in Canadian town of Onoway

Lynsey_ADMIN_Lynsey_ADMIN_ Administrator
People in Alberta are told their water is safe despite potassium permanganate leaking into the town's mains system.

Residents of a Canadian town have been shocked to find bright pink water coming out of their taps.

Authorities in Onoway, Alberta, said the colour was due to a faulty valve that allowed potassium permanganate to get into the water supply.

The chemical is used widely in the treatment of water to remove iron and the smell of rotten eggs that can arise from other substances present in pipeline networks.

Experts say it can cause skin burns as well as throat and abdominal pain if it is swallowed.

However, town officials said there was never any risk to the public. The water network has been flushed out just in case.
