DANVILLE, Va. (WDBJ7)-- In response to reports of a "musty" smell coming from the drinking water in the City of Danville, plant operators have begun to use a carbon treatment Thursday to combat the issue.

According to the City of Danville, the water is safe for drinking.

Some customers may not see results right away from the carbon treatment and still experience a smell for several days.

The cause of the water odor is still under investigation.
