Redlands Coast residents who have noticed an earthy taste or smell to their tap water have been assured by bulk water supplier Seqwater that it is safe to drink.
Seqwater advises that the water situation is being experienced across the region – including in Brisbane, Ipswich and Logan.
This rare and harmless occurrence is caused by increased natural organic compounds entering the raw water supply during warmer weather.
Seqwater is taking action to dilute the water coming from the affected system, with water taste and smell expected to return to normal within a few weeks.
