  1. I hope the increase means better water. The water tastes horrible and it is getting worse. I need to start filtering the water for my pets soon.

  2. Roy -

    The taste can change throughout the year as WASA changes the chemicals in the water. Right now there is chlorine being added as a disinfectant. WASA announced this in March According to their release, they were to stop the additive on May 12th, so check and see if the water smells/tastes any different this week.

  3. In Alexandria the price of water might go up 16.8%...what!?!?
