Students from Hiroshima University’s Higashi-Hiroshima Campus have been unknowingly drinking toilet water since April, 1993.

It took around 80 students getting ill with diarrhea and vomiting before uncovering a plumbing error that sent water for flushing toilets, instead of quality water, to the drinking fountains in the gymnasium.


University officials have apologized for the mix up.
