On Sunday, April 16, 2023, the Borough of Mars water plant experienced an over feeding of potassium permanganate which may have caused water in portions of the distribution system to appear pink. The potassium permanganate aids in the removal of iron and manganese from the raw water. This pink water poses no immediate health concerns to customers. The Borough of Mars has corrected the problem and is flushing the pink water from the system.
