I've been noticing this for the last week or two. Is it just me or has anyone else noticed it? It tastes awful!

Nope. It's not just you. They're messing with the water again.

The Town of Cary is generally very good about notifying residents when they are doing something to the water that will be noticeablebut I didn't see anything on their website.

I usually just buy a 2.5 gallon purified water container from Harris Teeter every week and drink that. I've never been a fan of unfiltered tap water.

We have one of these: Big Berkey Water Filter | Berkey Water Filter | Big Berkey | Berkey Water Filters | Berkey Water Filters and Purifiers No Scam | Home Water Filters

It can take pond water and make it drinkable. :-) Cheaper than a whole house filter.

It's always tasted a bit bad to me, but that's most city water. I normally buy the $1 gallon jugs of spring water to drink.

I live in West Cary and noticed this at the beginning of the week. I described it as tasting like "dirt" literally. So you guys think they are messing with the water systems again?? I personally have no problem with tap water but this is gross..

The Town of Cary’s drinking water source is the B. Everett Jordan Reservoir, more commonly known as Jordan Lake, which lies approximately 10 miles west of Cary in eastern Chatham County.
if you really want to look into the water issue, here's how from Cary Water Dept website:

For any questions or concerns relating to your drinking water or water service, please contact the Department of Public Works and Utilities Customer Service at (919) 469-4090. For more information about this report, please contact Penny Rosser, Ph.D., Chemist, at the Cary/Apex Water Treatment Facility at (919) 362-5507 or penny.rosser@townofcary.org.
