Earthy, musty taste and smell in drinking water in two Southern California counties could persist for weeks
Some residents in parts of two Southern California counties may notice a musty taste and odor in their tap water, but it is an aesthetic problem caused by an algae bloom and is not a health hazard, according to water quality experts.
Officials at the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California said the taste and odor event is affecting tap water in eastern Los Angeles County communities, as well as southwestern San Bernardino County. The impacts may vary as local agencies blend imported water with local supplies.

The Impression Series RC water conditioner is designed to treat hardness and unpleasant taste and odor in municipal water. It features a mid-plate design combining activated carbon and high-capacity resin into one tank. This eliminates the need for a second filter, and the carbon protects the resin from highly chlorinated water. The system’s microprocessor captures data including gallons per day and peak flow rates.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency offers its Secondary Maximum Contaminant Levels, which set non-mandatory water quality standards for 15 contaminants. These standards offer guidelines to assist public water systems in managing their drinking water for aesthetic considerations such as taste, odor and color.
