2019 SYSTEM DISINFECTANT CHANGE NOTIFICATION

August 1, 2019 - This is to notify our customers that on August 5, 2019, Waterworks will change back to using Chloramines as our primary disinfectant.

June 17, 2019 - Consolidated Waterworks District Number 1 made a temporary switch from Chloramines, to free chlorine as our primary disinfectant.

Chlorine and chloramines are common disinfectants used by water suppliers to kill bacteria in drinking water. As warmer water temperatures increase nitrification, we switch to free chlorine to clear pipes throughout the system of nitrification. As the weather cools and the water temperature stabilizes, we return to disinfecting with chloramines. This change is part of our annual maintenance of the distribution system, and it follows the guidelines set forth in our Nitrification Plan.
