Water Taste and Odors


Springtime changes have impacted the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers which are the sourceof the city of St. Louis’ drinking water. These conditions may have an effect on the water’s color, taste and odor but do not affect water quality and safety.

Depending on an individual’s sense of taste and smell, they may notice a change in our water.

The City of St. Louis Water Division continuously monitors our water treatment process and performs a broad range of laboratory testing to ensure the water provided to our customers is of the highest quality and safe to consume.

The City of St. Louis Water Division meets or exceeds all local, state and federal drinking water requirements.

For questions about regarding these or other quality issues, please contact us at 314-771-2251 or quality@stlwater.com
