The Bell County Water Control & Improvement District No. 1, which provides water to several municipalities in the area, one of which is Belton, has announced that for the next month it is changing its water treatment process and that during this time tap water may have a chlorine smell and taste.
The temporary change in treatment is a response to water quality concerns Killeen is experiencing. Although Belton and Killeen receive water from the same supplier, Belton’s water continues to meet quality standards.
As part of routine maintenance, Belton regularly flushes its system and tests water to assure compliance with state standards.
The change of smell and taste in the water is not a safety concern.
