Weird colours in your tap water? You're not alone.

The City of Waterloo says they're hearing more and more concerns about discoloured tap water.

There's no cause for concern though as the city says it's likely due to high temperatures, low rainfall, and a change in usage due to the pandemic.

While minerals don't pose a risk to your health, they're advising that you wait for your water to clear before drinking it.

If your water looks or smells different, you're asked to report it to 519-886-2310.
