ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis officials say the Missouri River is to blame for a foul smell in drinking water.

Water commissioner Curt Skouby told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1ifFsiX ) that the odor and taste should be gone within days. Meanwhile, he says the water is safe to drink.

Officials say upriver snowmelt and changing temperatures, along with naturally occurring material in the river, is causing the odor.

Kansas City, Mo., has also had complaints about its water in recent days.
