Each summer, usually in late July and into August, Lake Lavon undergoes an "algal bloom," a natural occurring event that is responsible for the taste and odor changes in the water supply. The North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD) monitors the onset of an algal bloom through daily algal counts and adjusts the treatment process to reduce the taste and/or odor changes that often occur as a result of this event.
It is important to note that the water remains safe to drink with no health hazards created by this phenomenon.
