BJWSA gives update on water treatment, maintenance

Posted: Updated:
OKATIE, SC (WTOC) -

Some Beaufort-Jasper Water and Sewer Authority customers may have noticed an earthy taste and odor in their tap water during the past several weeks. 

Operational issues at the Chelsea Water Treatment Plant are causing the taste and odor change. 

BJWSA adjusted its treatment and maintenance procedures to correct the issue. Only a slight odor remains in water leaving the plant, though customers may notice the odor for two more weeks.

Officials there say the water is safe to drink and to use as normal.
