I am living in my dorms at the moment and apparently it is an accepted thing that the water in the building is brown and yellow. According to my RA, this is a characteristic of the town I live in.
The only "clean" water we get is a water filter at the zeroth floor of our building where transparent water comes out.
Other than that the water that comes out of the tap, the kitchen, the shower, and the toilet bowl is light yellowish-brown water. I haven't done enough research as the cause of this problem.
Boiling water doesn't seem to change the colour either (is this even possible?). I for one cannot live like this, so I am asking the community here if they know a household method to remove the discoloration from the water.
