Customers Experiencing Earthy or Musty Taste and Odor in Their Water

Many customers in the northern half of the county have been experiencing taste and odor issues in their water. Tests performed by our Water Quality staff confirm that our tap water is safe and not harmful. The taste and odor issue is caused by the recent change in temperatures and algae that grows naturally in our drinking water reservoirs. We have shut down the plant that was the source of this water. We are seeing improvements in many areas, but the Forest Park area is still experiencing this issue. We understand this is frustrating and assure you that we are doing all we can to get their water back to normal. If you have concerns about your water, please call 770.960.5200.
