Taste and Odor in Tap Water

Due to the extremely warm weather, water temperatures are much higher than usual.  As a result, customers may experience taste and odor in their tap water. This taste and odor may range from a chlorine or chemical to a fishy or earthy musty taste and odor.  Please note that this is purely an aesthetic issue.  Refrigerating water prior to consumption or using ice may improve the taste. We have been, and will continue to, monitor our system to ensure proper water quality.  Tests confirm that the water continues to meet all Federal and State quality standards.  Missouri American Water is using additional treatment measures to minimize the impact of this condition.
