Sacramento health officials are advising some residents of North Sacramento to avoid drinking or cooking with tap water until further notice. A warning notice was reportedly left on doors throughout the area north of Interstate-80, south of Main Avenue, west of Norwood Avenue, and east of Pell Drive.
Investigators say the water has somehow been contaminated with an unknown purple discoloration. They believe that something was either added to or accidentally got into the water supply. In the meantime, affected residents are advised to use bottled water.
