Bowie Improving Its Water

Bowie residents could notice some changes in their tap water, but city leaders say not to worry.

The water treatment plant staff is doing a "free chlorine burn out". It's basically a process that makes sure your  water is disinfected and safe to drink. As a result of the procedure, residents may notice a slight bleach taste, cloudiness or even an odor from their tap water.

Due to low lake levels and algae growth this is the second time the burn out has been done this summer. The process should take about 10 days.
