SINGAPORE: Residents at an HDB block in Yishun Avenue 11 reported that their tap water has been giving off a foul smell.
Water agency PUB said tests on water samples from the block show the water is safe for drinking.
It has since given the block’s three water tanks a thorough cleaning.
Residents said the problem started on February 14.
One resident said she developed rashes.
"On Friday, I found rashes on my body, and it got worse on Sunday. It was very itchy. On Monday, I went to see a doctor," said Lin Hui Min.
