WARWICK - Residents in the Village of Warwick are fed up tonight after they say they've been dealing with water problems for over a month.

Brown, murky water, which has been described as root beer and chocolate milk, has been a common sight in residents' sinks.

Village officials sent customers a letter stating the murky water is caused by concentrations of iron and manganese, which they say is not hazardous.

The letter also stated that officials have flushed out the system and are treating the water with a small dosage of blended phosphate, which they say has been used in the water treatment industry for over 40 years.

News 12 Hudson Valley's calls to the Village of Warwick have gone unreturned.
