It has come to our attention there have been some questions about Rural Water District No. 2’s meter readers. The District contracts with two independent contractors to read the District’s meters. They read the meters between the 4th and the 25th of each month. They drive their personal vehicles and read meters on their schedules. The schedules may include weekends.
The meter readers have signs on their vehicles that identify they are the meter reader. Currently the meter readers are driving a small gold pickup or a maroon car, but again the vehicles they use are their personal vehicles. They are independent contractors and the District does not specify what they drive, other than the vehicle must be identified with the meter reader sign.
If you have concerns about the District’s meter readers, please do not hesitate to contact the District Office.

RWD#2 To Use Free Chlorine as Primary Disinfectant

The District will discontinue using combined chlorine on September 1, 2017. Instead, free chlorine will be used for a minimum of thirty days. This is part of the District’s annual maintenance program. Patrons may notice a stronger than usual chlorine taste and smell to the water. This is only temporary and it is necessary to “burn out” the system and kill certain “nitrifying” bacteria that do not show up on the routine sampling. These bacteria are not harmful to humans or animals. They tend to cause slime growths within the waterlines and create a higher than normal demand on chlorine, thus lowering disinfection properties.

The chlorine taste may linger after the free chlorine has been discontinued, since some areas may wait three weeks for the free chlorine to reach them. In some cases, there may be some natural soluble iron and manganese present in the waterlines. Free chlorine may further oxidize these substances. If you notice off-colored water, call the District office and we will flush in your area.

Your water will continue to be safe to use and drink!
