Some areas of the Gatineau Hospital have resorted to using bottled water because tap water was running slightly brown Wednesday.

Patricia Rhéaume, a spokesperson for the regional health authority, said the brown water is still potable and doesn't pose a health risk.

The brown water was discovered early Wednesday morning. Bottled water was distributed as a precaution, Rhéaume said.
