Does your water taste or smell a little different?

Post Date:07/18/2017 5:52 PM

We have been receiving reports of smelly water throughout the City.  The City of Carrollton purchases water from Dallas Water Utilities (DWU) and they regularly test their water to ensure it is safe for consumption.

DWU recently experienced a power failure at their primary water inlet causing them to switch to a lower level intake that is closer to the bottom of the lake and this results in a different water taste and smell.  Usually at this time of year the lakes begin to turn over allowing the water to have a musky smell and taste. In the past it has taken approximately two weeks for the smell and taste of the water to return to normal; however, water safety hasn’t been compromised.  Call 972-466-3000 with any questions.
