Kansas City Water Tastes Like Sewage As We Await EPIC Flooding Comeback
The great flood of 1951 put a great deal of this town underwater and already it looks like locals are watching the rising tide threaten rural areas and move toward the metro.
The word on the funky water . . .
“The flooding is causing water treatment challenges for KC Water,” according to a release from the water department for the city of Kansas City, Missouri. “ Due to the changing characteristics of the floodwaters coming down the Missouri River, the source of Kansas City’s drinking water, customers may notice taste and color issues during this time.”
KC Water stressed that its water is continuously monitored and tested, so it remains safe to drink.
