Earthy Taste and Odor Removed from Tap Water
BJWSA has eliminated the earthy taste and odor in our water leaving the Chelsea Water Treatment Plant. We took the reservoir offline about two weeks ago once it was identified as the source of the taste and odor, and water quality has improved steadily since then. We completed flushing the system to place water free from taste and odor into our pipes. We are working to bring the reservoir online.
We apologize for this prolonged event, and we appreciate the patience of our customers. We’re working to develop a long term plan to help prevent these taste and odor issues in the future.
BJWSA’s CAFR now available
Our 2013 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) is now available online. The CAFR is a report on our financial data, and it gives an overview of Authority activities over the fiscal year.
