SEASONAL CHANGE IN TASTE AND ODOR
In August, some City of Louisville water customers noticed a taste and odor with the City's drinking water. These seasonal fluctuations are caused by temperature variations in reservoirs and low flows in the surface water supply (i.e. creeks). Taste and odor is an aesthetic quality and has no health effects. The change in taste and odor does not adversely affect the quality of the water as it continues to comply with all Safe Drinking Water Act standards. Seasonal fluctuations are experienced by most communities at some point throughout the year. City staff will continue to monitor all water sources proactively to minimize such taste and odor events.
