A potassium release in the water in Doylestown turned the village’s water pink Thursday. The release occurred as the result of some repairs that were made to the village’s wellhead Thursday. The public Utilities Department was aware of the release and worked to fix the issue, but said the water was still safe to drink. The department conducted hydrant flushing overnight to reduce the potassium in the water, but also wanted to let residents know that if their water was still pink that it is safe to drink, but to just let the water run until it turns clear.
