Sep 06 - Do you have questions about water taste and clarity? Two water quality concerns related to aesthetics have been reported. These two aesthetic concerns are temporary, separate and not related in any way. The first is that water in the South area of the City has been described as “mossy” or “earthy” in flavor recently. The water is safe to drink. We want to let our customers know that the taste can be affected by lower water levels in the Sacramento and American rivers and higher water temperatures. This causes naturally occurring bacteria that affect the taste of the water, but pose no health risk. This happens around this time of year when it’s hot and dry. As temperatures start to cool, the taste and odor issue will eventually disappear. To alleviate the earthy taste, the City’s water quality superintendent recommends adding lemon to the water or placing tap water in the refrigerator to cool it down. More info: Read Post
