Tank water or city water.
Looks like a lot of rust as well as some heavy aeration.
If city water it could be that some work was done on the system.
Where i used to live we'd get warnings from our water utility after a big fire where the fire department had drawn a LOT of water. Tended to stir sedement up as water flowed from different directions. Crews would come out and open neighborhood hydrants to flush.
Strange, just as i was writing this last paragraph the evening news just flashed a short video of a fire that just broke out a few miles from me. A huge building, about one city block in area, fully engulfed in flames.
Bet they're going to need a lot of water on that one.
