The reason for the difference in taste and smell is a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers project that will last through mid-October, the city said in a message to residents. The project involves moving water transmission lines to a city of Lewisville treatment facility.
The relocation project is being described as temporary. The water treatment plant will not be able to use a “powder-activated carbon” over the course of the project, which is what is expected to cause the change in the water’s taste and smell, the city said.
“The potential taste and odor issues are aesthetic only and pose no health hazard,” the city said in the message to residents.
The taste issues are expected to be resolved by Oct. 9, the city said.
