COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - Columbia Water advised residents of a system flush after reports of a strange odor Monday.

The organization said downtown customers may have noticed a chlorine taste or smell in the water. It is safe to drink. The smell is the result of an issue with their ammonia feed, which is used to mask chlorine tastes and odors in drinking water.

The issue was resolved Monday morning and Columbia Water is currently flushing their system to bring fresh water to impacted customers.
