Reader's Question: What's the matter with the water?

(By e-mail, and by phone yesterday) "Why has the water in Jimena turned dark and murky? Can we drink it?" Don't worry, it happens quite often, especially in the summer. It is a stage prior to putting in the chlorine that turns it white. Officially, it is perfectly drinkable, but would you want to? (Prospero note: Thanks for this one, people, I was alarmed in the shower yesterday and this morning! Took the photo this morning but wasn't wearing me glasses; sorry.)
