surfergirl69 Sep 26, 2020 10:46 PM Cachuma Blue-Green Algae in Goleta Water Chico, followed your mywaterquality.gov link, and, oddly enough Santa Barbara County isn't even listed. (That's of 9/26 evening when I checked) . I have a Brita filter, which, I think is supposed to remove algae , and it is not helping at all recently. Before three weeks ago, the Brita was great. Very good tasting water. Now it is AWFUL !! The Goleta Water District fancy website has NOTHING about the recent issue......even though a customer service representative there told me that they have had many complaints recently , that they flushed a pipe, and that it should clear up if people run enough water. He said the problem was excess hard water...not algae. So....what the heck is going on ???? The GWD website says they have a meeting by telephone the public can access on Tues, Oct 6. There is also a public comment link. The website does have reports of water quality available....the most recent being.... GET THIS....April 2020. This is messed up, and whatever is in the water does not even taste like algae or minerals....more like a chemical. May even be something from the well supply .....who knows...need answers !!
