Slight change in water aesthetics

Post Date:07/21/2019 12:00 PM

From our Water Quality Division :
You may have noticed a slight change in the aesthetics, taste and odor of your tap water this week. The issue appears to be with the current source water, O.H. Ivie.

Occasionally, and especially during very hot sunny conditions, the quality of O.H. Ivie water lessens, mostly due to the degradation of algae and organic material present in the lake.

This should be a temporary condition and should clear in the upcoming days. Additional hydrant flushing has been initiated to expedite the clearing of water currently in the distribution system.

The water treatment plant continues to monitor the quality of the water and ensures it is always safe to drink and meets or exceeds Public Drinking Water Standards.
