COLUMBIA COUNTY, GA. – If you live in Columbia County, you may have noticed a strange taste and smell in the water coming from your faucet.

County leaders say “Don’t be Alarmed,” the water is perfectly safe to drink.

Water utility administrators tell us the taste is caused by chemicals released by algae in the lake.

It gets into the water system when lake levels are low.

The county says it’s been flushing out water hydrants, which should help clear up the issue soon.
