Have you ever seen pink water? The people of St. Michael have, as CBS recently reported:
In a press release sent by the city on Tuesday, officials explained that the routine maintenance includes the use of potassium permanganate to “recharge” the water filters at the plant. Potassium permanganate is a non-toxic chemical and is used every day to remove iron and manganese in the water treatment process.
While the report said potassium permanganate is non-toxic, the Material Safety Data Sheet on ScienceLab.com says the substance can have an array of health effects, including damage to lungs, kidneys, liver, skin and central nervous system.
