Earthy Odor in Water
7/11/2016  Customers in Saratoga, Campbell, Los Gatos, and Monte Sereno may have noticed a slight and quickly dissipating earthy odor to water from the tap. This odor is the result of an algae bloom in the water supply prior to treatment by the Santa Clara Valley Water District. While the District's treatment process removes the algae and makes the water safe to drink, it is not always able to remove the odor that remains. Water has been tested and both San Jose Water and the District concluded that drinking water meets all drinking water standards and is safe to consume. The District and San Jose Water will continue to monitor the odor and customers who continue to experience this issue are encouraged to contact San Jose Water Company's Customer Service department at (408) 279-7900.

Additional information is available on the Santa Clara Valley Water District website and San Jose Water Company website.
