The City Water Department will change how it disinfects the water supply during June. The Department normally uses chloramine to disinfect water. In June, the Department will use chlorine. The yearly temporary conversion from chloramines to free chlorine ensures water safety in pipelines by ridding mains of residual microscopic organic particles. Citizens may see more flushing of fire hydrants during this process and see a slight change in the smell, taste and look of their water. This may include a “chlorine odor” and slight discoloration.
