RWD #2 To Use Free Chlorine

The District will temporarily discontinue using combined chlorine on Tuesday, August 27, 2019.  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 is necessary to “burn out” the system to 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 water lines 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.  Some areas may not notice the taste difference for up to three weeks after the treatment change.  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!
