Fostoria officials say algae blooms in the city’s reservoirs are causing the city’s water supply to smell like eggs. The Review-Times reports that even though the water may smell unpleasant and have a bitter taste, it isn’t harmful. Mayor Eric Keckler tells the newspaper the hot, dry summer conditions sparked a non-toxic algae bloom.
Water treatment plant foreman Ron Fauls says they are using activated carbon to try and reduce the smell. Fauls says that can take a while to work though. He added it could take a few weeks before there are significant improvements.
