How about that Lake Ontario water this past summer

People all over Ontario getting the stinky water from some type of algae bloom in the lake.

My fish probably had cleaner water than me (due to filtration)


Thank goodness its over. I got sick and tired of having to wash all my clothes twice with too much soap because they came out of the Maytag stinking to high heaven from the municipal water suplly.

I never noticed it this year. When exactly was that? We have filtered water on the frodge, and it must have removed it.

algae build up that caused terrible stink in the water from Niagara all the way around to Oshawa.

Even if you had filtered drinking water, you could still smell it in the laundry or shower water

I cannot imagine...sorry to hear it...out here at the feet of the Rocky Mountains, our water was glacial clear and clean all year.
