2023 TEMPORARY SYSTEM DISINFECTANT CHANGE NOTIFICATION
On June 14, 2023, Consolidated Waterworks District No. 1 will begin a temporary disinfectant change by switching 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.
