Manganese in the water, manganese-rich sediment trapped in the system and infrastructure corrosion are possible causes of this dark discoloration.
Often, these colors are caused by tiny air bubbles that disappear quickly and are not a health threat. This coloration may be caused by a well issue. Testing is recommended if the color does not disappear as the water settles.
