Maple Shade residents concerned over water

Maple Shade, NJ (WTXF) Residents in Maple Shade are concerned about the quality of their water after pictures and video that look more like coffee than water began to surface.

Neighbors in the New Jersey Township say that the discoloration happens fairly regularly and they don't feel like the Township is giving them clear answers.

"Sometimes they say the main broke. Sometimes they say someone opened a hydrant but these excuses, pardon the expression; don't carry water," one resident told FOX 29.

A group of nearly 2,000 residents on a Township Facebook page say that they need to know the water is safe.

The Township maintains that the discoloration is a result of sediment in the pipes and is harmless but a town meeting is scheduled for next week to address the growing concerns.
