Sweetwater Authority customers may notice a taste and odor of their water due to the hot weather. These changes are caused by an algae bloom and are not harmful. Occasionally, naturally-occurring minerals and algae in the water Sweetwater Authority (Authority) treats, or disruptions in the Authority’s distribution system, can cause changes in the taste, odor and color of the water we provide our customers. These changes are not a public health issue. The Authority ensures that the water we provide to our customers consistently meets all state and federal safety standards and remains safe to drink.
For more information on the color and odor of your water, see FAQs here.
