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.
