The City has received numerous complaints about objectionable tastes and odors in our drinking water over the past two days. We believe that this occurrence is due to changes in the river water quality as well as cleaning/flushing operations at the water treatment plant. We have collected water samples at numerous locations around the City. We are confident that the water is safe for drinking, bathing, and all other uses.
We consider the aesthetic qualities (taste and odor) of our drinking water a serious matter. Please be assured that we will do everything in our power to rectify the situation as quickly as possible.
