  • Sacramento water has ‘earthy’ taste due to drought, officials say
    Droughts have the potential to affect our lives in ways we may not have imagined. That became clear recently to some Sacramento residents. After receiving calls from people about an “earthy” taste and odor to their drinking water, the city responded with a blog post saying that, although this happens every year, the state’s latest drought has caused the change in the water much earlier than usual.

  • ‘Lawn’ is becoming a ‘four-letter word’ amid Utah’s dire drought
    Raising water rates on big water users. Paying Utah residents to rip out their lawns. Increased xeriscaping. These conservation efforts are already happening or expected to happen in the near future in southern Utah — and some Wasatch Front cities have already adopted ordinances to limit lawns in new developments. That’s what water district officials told Utah lawmakers on the Natural Resources, Agriculture, and Environment Interim Committee on Wednesday. Deseret News, June 16
  • Metropolitan Water District of Southern California among targets in cyber-espionage hack blamed on China
    A cyber-espionage campaign blamed on China was more sweeping than previously known, with suspected state-backed hackers exploiting a device meant to boost internet security to penetrate the computers of critical U.S. entities. Among the suspected targets was the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, which provides water to 19 million people and operates some of the largest treatment plants in the world.

  • Increasing contamination causes shutdown of Tucson water treatment plant
    The groundwater on Tucson's south side has gotten so contaminated that Tucson Water will soon shut down the plant that's been treating it for 27 years. The Tucson Airport Remediation Project plant will be temporarily but indefinitely shut down on June 21 because it's getting too difficult to remove "forever chemicals" known as PFAS from it. Because PFAS levels are rapidly rising in south side wells, it's no longer possible to guarantee that the plant can keep serving water that's safe for drinking, Tucson Water officials said.
