Annual Chlorine Maintenance

TEMPORARY CHANGE IN DISINFECTION
(ALSO KNOWN AS ANNUAL CHLORINE MAINTENANCE)

Each year for about one month, we suspend the use of ammonia to allow the remaining chlorine to keep the water disinfected as it travels through the system. This temporary change in disinfectant helps maintain the system and high water quality year round. It’s important to do this before summer because hotter temperatures can increase the potential for bacterial growth in pipes.  This Maintenance will take place from July 15, 2019 through August 10, 2019.
