WESTPORT, Conn. -- Students and staff received bottled water at no charge Friday at Staples High School after the flushing of hot-water lines a day earlier caused discolored water to flow from the taps, according to the Westport News.

The head custodian noticed the discolored water coming from a sink’s faucets on Thursday, March 10, interim Principal Mark Karagus told the Westport News. The discolored water was only found at sinks with hot water, drinking fountains were not affected, said the Westport News.

Karagus told the Westport News that an agency was checking the lines to find the problem and are testing the water. Results are expected over the weekend and the school hopes to have the issue solved over the weekend, added the Westport News.
