Residents Concerned Over Smelly Tap Water
Musty smelly tap water is reported in some south St. Louis areas. According to the Missouri American Water Co., the odd smell and taste is due to the recent cold snap that hit the area, causing the warmer water of the Meramec River, the main water source, to rise or turn. A spokesperson for MAW states, the water is tested hundreds of times a day and meets all requirements. The company said, although the smelly water does not pose a health risk, they are adjusting the treatment to the water and everything should be back to normal by Friday.
