In recent days, some City of Concord water customers have noticed a musty taste and / or odor in their drinking water.  This problem is caused by the normal turnover of the City’s reservoirs. This turnover usually occurs in the fall and the spring of each year, due to the warming or cooling of the water.  In response to this problem, the Coddle Creek Water Treatment Plant (WTP) has increased its dosage of powdered activated carbon, a chemical that helps to remove tastes and odors from the water. Because of this increased carbon dosage, the taste and odor problem has been improving at the water plant, but this water still has to travel throughout the City’s distribution system, before customers will notice the improvement.  It is important to note that, although customers may notice a taste or an odor in the water, the water is tested every day and it is completely safe to drink.  The City of Concord encourages anyone who has questions or concerns regarding their drinking water to call (704) 920-5555.
