Toronto tap water gets accidental spike in chlorine levels
Did your Toronto tap water taste a little funky last night? If so, you probably weren't the only one to notice a difference in your H2O.
According to the city, the water was - and remains - drinkable. As Global News reports, a city spokesperson said there was a slight increase in chlorine levels in the east end, but tests showed that the water was still safe to consume.
Complaints about the city's water started rolling in at around 10 p.m. Some water drinkers sought out advice on Bunz Helping Zone, while many others took to Twitter to get an explanation from 311, the city's public information service.
Many said the water tasted and smelled like chemicals. The city has yet to provide a reason for why chlorine levels were higher last night.
