CUD is currently experiencing a taste issue caused by algae bloom in the source water.  The severity of the issue can vary greatly based on a host of factors, including individual sensitivity.

CUD has significantly increased the amount of activated carbon used in the water treatment process to mitigate this taste issue as much as possible.  This is the same activated carbon used in residential and commercial water filtration systems.  Although the taste is unpleasant, rest assured that the water is safe and know that the taste issue will pass within a few days.  Your patience is appreciated.

Wally Water

Every decision…every consideration…is made with our customer in mind. Consolidated Utility District plays a tremendous role in the lives of our customers and the future of Rutherford County; this is not a responsibility we take lightly. Perhaps nothing else is more important to the way we live than a safe, reliable water supply.

We support area teachers in educating the next generation about their water supply right here in Rutherford County. We offer complete educational programs with speaker appearances and literature developed for the age level they need. “Wally Water”, the CUD mascot, can be seen in schools, parades, and shopping centers to promote water awareness. It is important to see that future generations enjoy a safe and reliable supply of drinking water.
