Disinfecting of Water Supply Starts June 1

 

The City of San Angelo’s Water Department will change how it disinfects the public water supply during June. They normally use chloramine, a mix of ammonia and chlorine, to disinfect water. In June, the Water Department will use only chlorine, also known as “free chlorine.” This ensures water safety in pipelines. Water users may note a slight change in the smell, taste, and look of their water. This may include a “chlorine odor” and slight discoloration. Most symptoms should lessen after a couple of weeks; they do not affect the safety of the water. The Water Department will monitor chlorine levels and water quality in the system daily to ensure all standards are met.
