Drinking water for 3 million Southern Californians could have a strange taste over the next few weeks due to high levels of algae in a state reservoir, regional water officials said.

Blue-green algae is blooming in Silverwood Lake, which is located 9 miles north of Crestline off Highway 138.

Because of the blooming algae, water could taste musty for people in eastern Los Angeles and Western San Bernardino and Riverside Counties.

The water is, however, safe to drink, according to the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California.

The areas affected include: Claremont, La Verne, Walnut, Diamond Bar, Rowland Heights, Upland, Chino, Chino Hills, Rancho Cucamonga, Fontana, Riverside and the Riverside County communities of Corona, Norco, Eastvale, Jurupa Valley, Lake Elsinore, Hemet, Perris, Murrieta and Temecula.
