Over the weekend, several Brentwood residents complained about City of Brentwood water and how it tasted and smelled different than normal.
According to Miki Tsubota, Director of Public Works/City Engineer, there are no health concerns.
“Some City of Brentwood customers are experiencing taste and odor issues resulting from an algae bloom in the City’s source water. Please know that there are no health concerns, but tap water may temporarily smell or taste earthy,” said Tsubota.
Tsubota added that algae blooms affecting Brentwood water smell and taste have occasionally occurred in the past. These usually occur seasonally after long spells of continuous hot weather.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the City at (925) 516-6000 or by online service request at http://www.brentwoodca.gov/gov/pw/service_request.asp.
