Temporary Change in Disinfectant
The North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD) will temporarily change the disinfectant in its water treatment process from March 4 through April 1, 2019. The annual, routine change is necessary to maintain the regional system and year round water quality. Disinfection is a critical part of the water treatment process that keeps drinking water safe. It involves a two-step process that treats the water, then adds disinfectant to maintain water quality as it travels long distances through pipes to homes and businesses.
For one month each spring, ammonia is temporarily suspended and free chlorine is used to help maintain the system and high water quality year-round. The North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD) has been doing this for more than 10 years and has always maintained good water quality that meets health standards.
