Residents in the city of Heidelberg, Germany recently noticed their tap water started to exhibit a strange, blueish hue.
One local conducted a PH test and found the water to be highly acidic, which is very unusual:
According to German news site Mannheimer Morgen:
The Integrated Control Center of the Rhein-Neckar-Kreis warned Thursday morning against the use of drinking water for the city of Heidelberg and for the municipality of Dossenheim. As the district office informed about the warning app NINA, drinking water should not be used or consumed due to an “unknown contamination” until further notice. It is recommended to create a supply of drinking and service water. The toilet flush may continue to be used according to the warning.
