6/18/20 Notice on Chlorine Smell in Drinking Water

Note to KKW customers:

 

Date 6/18/20

 

Over the last couple of days some of you have expressed concerns regarding aesthetic water quality (taste and odor issues). With the increasing demand for water throughout the service area, this is the time of year we activate additional groundwater sources and even occasionally acquire water from our neighboring utilities. This initial blending of water from different sources and directions can mean slightly different disinfection levels that can cause a taste you may not be accustom to, especially for those with very acute senses. We sincerely apologize for any aesthetic water quality issues you may have experienced and want you to assure you that things should normalize within a few days. Please continue to contact us should you have any questions or concerns about your drinking water.
