HOUSTON -- Do not drink the water! That's the warning from the University of Houston after students started seeing murky water coming out of faucets on campus.

The University sent the following statement:

“The University of Houston Main Campus is presently experiencing discoloration of water in its facilities supplied by the City of Houston.  As a precaution, until the City of Houston identifies the problem and ensures the water is safe for consumption, the University of Houston is recommending our campus community avoid drinking tap water on campus at this time.  UH is coordinating with the City of Houston to flush the water system on campus to expedite removal of discoloration.  Both the city and university are collecting water samples for testing and anticipate expedited results.”

Until the city says it is safe to drink, stick to bottled water.
