Downriver cities to test water supply after reports of strange odor

Cities of Gibraltar, Woodhaven conduct own tests because of smell

Smelly tap water in Downriver communities is causing two cities to conduct their own tests to confirm if the water is really safe to drink.

Last week, the Great Lakes Water Authority conducted testing at its Southwest Treatment Plant in Allen Park.

The water authority said Friday the tests showed the water was safe, and that the smell and bad taste would go away soon.

Two days later, residents told Local 4 News they're still having issues.

The cities of Gibraltar and Woodhaven are conducting their own tests because of the smell.

Test results are expected Monday.
