WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

This past summer you might have noticed water in Wichita Falls tasting and smelling a little bit weird.
City leaders have come up with a solution that they hope alleviates the problem in the future.

Council members passed an ordinance on October 18, for a $118,000 spectrometer that will allow the city to be more proactive when testing the water.

"We can't identify how to treat that water until we send a sample off. When we send a sample off it is very expensive and takes at least a week to get back. By then the cat is out of the bag. The taste and odor problems have already propagated themselves through the entire distribution system."


The new system will allow them to get results back 1 hour after the beginning of the test.
