Fostoria is dealing with algae blooms in two of its reservoirs. The Review-Times reports the algae is nontoxic, but could be giving tap water a musty odor and a slightly bitter taste.
Filtration plant supervisor Ron Fauls tells the newspaper that blooms are common this time of year. Algae has been growing in Reservoirs 5 and 6 for the last two weeks. It’s being treated with activated carbon, but Fauls says that can take some time to do the trick.
Safety Service Director Allyson Murray says the city is monitoring the water 24 hours a day to ensure it is safe to use.
