"We live on the sixth floor and our building does not have an elevator. Each time we prepare a meal, we must go downstairs to fetch two buckets of water."

So said an elderly woman who lives in Xinruijia residential community in Haidian District. The woman told media that, last Thursday morning, she found the tap water had a strange smell and there were visible particles in the water. Since then, they stopped using tap water. Other residents in the same neighborhood also faced the same situation.  At the moment, the tap water system of their residential community has been shut off while the local water service company launches an investigation.
