GRANITE CITY, Il (KMOV.com) -- Complaints about the smell and taste of drinking water in one Metro East community are growing. Residents in Granite City have contacting News-4 to say their water smells so bad, some have stopped drinking tap water and turned to bottled water.

Illinois American Water is the provider of water in Granite City and serves a quarter million customers in Madison and St. Clair counties.

The company gets its water from the Mississippi River and is blaming the low water in the river for changes to drinking water in its service area.
