East Bay MUD says the taste and smell of the water coming from taps in Western Contra Costa County should return to normal in the next day or two.

An algae bloom is producing a bad flavor and odor, and a green tinge to water coming from San Pablo reservoir.

Several customers have complained. East Bay MUD officials say despite the smell, the water is safe to drink.
