Dark Water No Problem, City Says
Pat Andre, who lives on Beach 101 Street, says that she was filling pails from the tap to water the flowers nearby the beach when she noticed that the water was a dark brown color. Andre, pictured with a bottle of the dark water, says that she and her neighbors have been complaining about the water for a long time. The city’s Department of Environmental Protection, however, says that the color comes from construction projects in the area and is not dangerous to drink. Andre is not so sure. “We have been spending a fortune on Poland Spring Water recently,” she said.
