Officials are responding to complaints that the city's tap water does not taste great.
The St. Louis Water Division posted a statement to its website that the taste is due to the growth of some matter in area rivers. Crews plans to flush the system with additional chemicals and the taste should be back to normal with a few days.
Officials stress that the water is safe to drink and meets all federal and state requirements.
