Does the Austin city tapwater still smell like a fishtank each summer? Is there still a brownout every night between about 2:30 AM and 4:45 AM?

Occasionally the water smells like fresh-cut grass.

The only brownouts are either state-wide "rolling" brownouts controlled by ERCOT, or weather-related. Seems we have a lot of folks that bitch and moan about the city/energy crews trimming trees back from the power lines, with the result that a good windstorm or icestorm will knock out power. Apparently keeping tree branches trimmed somehow devalues your property or hurts the environment or something.
