Due to a recent issue with our water softening system at the City of Ontario Water Plant, your water may have a salty taste to it. While we have the majority of the problem corrected, there are still some areas in town that are experiencing the salty taste in their water.

The salt that we use is similar to what is used in a water softener in your home, and poses no danger if consumed. We will continue to work to remove all levels of excess salt. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused for you, and thank you for your patience as we work to correct the problem.   It is our expectation to have this situation completely resolved by the end day Wednesday, January 3rd.
