Tap water discolored, smells in 3 university buildings

The tap water in three research and clinical buildings on campus may be unsafe to drink, according to a university official on Thursday.

Discolored and foul-smelling water was reported Wednesday in Moos and Phillips-Wangensteen buildings, university spokesperson Daniel Wolter told the StarTribune.

On Thursday, investigators also found that the tap water in Diehl Hall was tainted, the Minnesota Daily reported.

All three buildings are at the end of a water main. The university has been flushing the systems of the buildings since Wednesday night, according to the StarTribune.

More than 600 dentist appointments have been cancelled due to the lack of water in the buildings, the Minnesota Daily reported.

The university has not found the cause of the contamination yet, the StarTribune reported.
