There have been recent concerns about taste and odor with the City of Natchitoches drinking water.
Consultants advise that the problem is caused by the combination of excessive rainfall runoff into Sibley Lake earlier this year, now coupled with the low water level due to the lack of rainfall in recent months.
Treatment options for this problem are currently being evaluated. Progress in correcting the problem will begin to be noticeable in the near future.
The water is safe for human consumption a this time and is in compliance with standards set by EPA drinking water regulations.
