Bleach Smell in Midland Water to Last a Few More Weeks

Staff Report
NewsWest 9

MIDLAND - Midlanders have been asking NewsWest 9, how much longer they'll have to deal with that bleach smell in their water.

It will be a few more weeks.

Right now, the city is in the middle of a cleaning process to control biofilm in the water system.

Biofilm is a naturally occurring organic matter that if left untreated, can cause the water to have a bad taste or smell.

The process began last Monday and will take about a month.

It is still safe to drink and shower in, it just has an unpleasant chlorine smell.
