My water has a funny smell or taste; should I worry about getting sick?

A change in your water’s taste, color, or smell is not necessarily a health concern. Because drinking water is a natural resource, its taste, color, and odor can sometimes vary slightly from day to day, from town to town, and from faucet to faucet. Modern Electric Water Company’s water is safe according to strict state and federal standards so that it is safe to drink. However, sometimes changes can be a sign of problems. If you notice a change in your water, call us at (509) 928-4540.
