San Fernando Valley Residents Report Musty Tap Water

San Fernando Valley

If you're smelling a pungent odor in your sink, you're not alone, as residents of the San Fernando Valley are reporting having tap water that smells less than desirable.

The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power are claiming that the stench is coming from a "harmless" algae bloom that was created by rainstorms this winter in the Owens Valley. They describe the smell as being an "earthy or musty odor," and defenseless victims in the San Fernando Valley have reportedly been complaining to the Department of Water and Power about their stinky tap water all week.
