Smelly City Water Returning to Normal

The City of Tyler says the "smelly" water people have been complaining about, is going away.

The flow through the new Lake Palestine Water Treatment Plant has been reversed, and Utilities Director Greg Morgan says the system is being flushed out. A dirty smell and taste forced many restaurants and businesses to use bottled water last week.

Test results on exactly what caused the problem should be in by tomorrow, but the suspicion is that dead algae created the dirty smell.
