Water Taste/Odor

Notice:

The City of Auburn is aware of taste and odor complaints with our public water. Customers have noticed a musty, earthy often disagreeable taste and smell in the City’s water. This is due to a harmless algae bloom at the lake source . The taste and odor does NOT affect the safety of your drinking water.
The City of Auburn purchases all of our water from the Otter Lake Water Commission. Once purchased, we monitor the water for bacteria, disinfection by-products, and lead and copper on a regular basis. If our water is ever found to be unsafe the public would be immediately notified. The City’s drinking water meets or exceeds all local, state and federal drinking water standards.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we deal with this current taste and odor issue. If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact Otter Lake Water Commission at 965-1566.
