SAN RAMON, Calif. (KGO) -- Starting Sunday, that bad smelling and tasting water in the East Bay will be back.
By law, some of it must be set aside to protect salmon. That means moving farther up the reservoir for the drinking water supply, which has more algae in it.
"It's not ideal, but it's related to the drought, but the alternative would be not having enough water next year or the following year if this continues," explained Abby Figueroa with EBMUD.
The water also tasted funny in March, but officials are planning to change-over more slowly this time, hoping to give people more time to adjust.
