Due to last month's rainfall and the sudden rise in lake levels, we have been experiencing aesthetic issues with the treated water coming from the treatment plant. The fresh water coming into the lake creates turbidity, a slight color in the water, and can also cause an odor after the water has gone through the treatment process.

Please be assured the water is treated to the highest standards possible to assure the water is safe to drink and is in compliance with all TCEQ standards and regulations. During the treatment process at the plant, the water is continuously monitored and tested to assure the quality and safety of the final product. Disinfectant levels are also checked daily throughout the distribution system for safe disinfectant levels. 

The Corporation has been flushing waterlines throughout the system to keep the water as fresh and clear as possible. The excess runoff water in the lake has slowly started to clear up which will also allow the treated water to begin to get more clear as well. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter.
