FREEMAN RESIDENTS: WATER TASTE FUNNY? THERE'S GOOD REASON

Posted in:

The tap water coming from the city of Freeman has recently developed a funny taste, and there's a good reason for that.

According to City Finance Officer Adam Van Ningen, B-Y Water District, which provides service to the city, has been adding additional chemicals to the water because of possible contamination from its water source — the Missouri River.

Recent flooding has sounded the alarm for contamination and the state has been working with B-Y to monitor what is distributed to municipalities like Freeman "to provide safe drinking water," Van Ningen said.

He said is hard to know when the water will taste "normal" again, but he expects it will.
