Cornwall is set to get better drinking water.

More than £14 million will go to upgrading filters at Wendron near Helston and Restormel near Lostwithiel.

It means any unwanted materials will be removed.

The two water treatment works station supply more than three quarters of the Duchy.

We are being warned we could notice changes to the taste and odour of our water for a short while.

Jason Harvey is from South West Water, he said: "The drinking water received by customers in Cornwall and the rest of the South West is already fantastic and some of the best in the UK and even the world, but this is an enhancement to that quality, potentially there are legislation changes coming in the future on materials that we need to remove from the water, and this will effectively remove those materials.

"There is a slight chance that some customers will notice a slight change to the quality of the water, they might notice some taste, they might notice some odour, but this is very short term, and we are mitigating this to the best we can by bringing these new filters online in a phased approach, so it is a blending operation."
