FOLLOW UP TO TASTE AND ODOR “ALERT”
October 3, 2014 10:37PM
The City of Houston has advised the Authority that levels of MIB and geosmin — which cause earthy or musty taste and odors experienced recently by some customers — have significantly declined. The City will continue to monitor these levels and will advise us at once should the levels rise to an unacceptable level. After checking with the operators of customer districts that reported taste and odor concerns, the Authority’s operator has confirmed that the number of these complaints has declined to normal levels. The incident we communicated with you about on August 27th has been mitigated, and we request that our customers return to surface water as their primary water supply.
Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Authority at 281-440-3924.
