Drought Affecting Smell Of Kentucky Tap Water

State officials say the drought may also be affecting your water.

They tell everyone not to be alarmed if your water smells a little funny.

Officials say the water is safe to drink and use for any daily activities.

They say the reason for the smell in some places is because of low water pressure that lets the water sit still too long.

If you notice something else in your water besides the odd odor or taste, you can call the Division of Water at 502-564-3410.
