I have noticed a smell lately in the water when I shower, brush my teeth etc. I have a filter and I even taste it through the filter, but not as strong. If I boil my water prior to filtering will that get rid of the moldy smell? Also I called Public Works, they will have someone come check the lines. I did see other posts about this that were over a year old. They mentioned a new ozonation being impleminted in 2013-2014 that should take care of this. When I asked if that was complete I was told they didn't know anything about it?

Each summer, throughout the months of July, August, and September, lakes and other surface water supplies experience a natural event an "algal bloom." Algal blooms are common to surface water supplies in warm weather climate states like Texas. Read more: http://www.ntmwd.com/taste_odor.html

This palatability change results from a naturally occurring algal bloom that does not alter the quality of the water provided to Frisco from our water supplier, the North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD). Learn more about taste and odor and the steps the NTMWD is taking with the implementation of ozonation by early 2014 at the Wylie Water Treatment Plant.

For more details, please contact the North Texas Municipal Water District at 972-442-5405
