Many of our customers have noticed the earthy smell and taste to your tap water recently.
This is an issue with all water providers drawing water from Lake Murray. While this is not uncommon for surface water systems across the country, it has never been this unpleasant locally.
We have been working with treatment plant personnel to implement immediate and long-term strategies to address this issue once and for all. We hope to see improved results soon.
Please be assured this is an aesthetic nuisance only and not a water safety concern. We apologize for the inconvenience and frustration this is causing the communities we serve. We appreciate your patience and understanding while we work to resolve the issue.
