Beginning Tuesday, August 12, 2014 and continuing through Friday September 12, 2014, Chisholm in partnership with the City of Georgetown, will temporarily change the disinfectant used in the water treatment process from Chloramine to Chlorine.
Chloramine is a mixture of chlorine and ammonia and is used by the District in the normal disinfectant process. State drinking water guidelines recommend water systems using chloramines to periodically switch to chlorine to keep water mains clean and free of harmful bacteria. This brief change in disinfectants is a standard water treatment practice.
During this temporary switch to chlorine, customers may notice a slight change in the taste or smell of their tap water. While this change may cause some concern, we assure you the water is safe to drink. To help alleviate these side effects, the District will be flushing main lines during this process. If you experience water quality issues after the completion date, please contact our customer care staff at 254-793-3103.
We appreciate your patience and will work diligently to minimize any inconvenience experienced during this temporary switch in disinfectants.
