Stinky Water is Back

If your tap water smells or tastes funny, it's the same problem of dead algae that cropped up toward the end of last year. The Lake Palestine plant was shut down over the holidays so the water could be flushed out. But since the plant went back online Monday, nearly 200 people have reported having smelly water. The water department says it's going to try changing the way it treats the water. Officials say they hope to fix the problem within the next 24 hours. They say the smelly water is safe to drink.
