Your city tap water may smell and taste different for the next two months. The Tenmile Water Treatment Facility will be off-line for maintenance to the system, which will last approximately 8 weeks. The Missouri River Water Treatment Facility will meet the city’s water demands while the Tenmile plant is offline. Water from the Missouri River may taste and smell different, but the water is safe to drink and meets all regulated water quality standards.
City officials say that Helena is fortunate to have two water sources, and they want to be sure the Tenmile plant is in the best possible condition for many years to come.
