County water has an mold and mildew smell

We live in the Holden Beach mainland area and have noticed a strong mold and mildew smell from the county water. The water usually has a strong Chlorine smell. The main questions I would like to know is: 1. What plan of action does Brunswick County have in place if the county water is contaminated? 2. If it is contaminated, would the county shut-off the water mains OR just notify residents not to drink the water (or boil the water) as they did when water from the water main on Hwy 17/Shallotte was contaminated and the water main had to be replaced? 3. Would the county provide bottled water to residents that pay for county water? 4, The statement "It just takes us a long time to get it out of our system" from Mr. Pierce is somewhat alarming. What is the estimated timeframe?
