AS A RESULT OF THE WATER MAIN BREAK DETAILED BELOW, THE CITY TREATED THE WATER SYSTEM WITH A LOW DOSE OF CHLORINE ON TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 30TH AS A PRECAUTIONARY MEASURE.  THE CHLORINE WILL SPREAD THROUGHOUT THE TANK AND WATER MAINS OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS. YOU MAY DETECT A SLIGHT CHLORINE TASTE. IT IS AN EXTREMELY LOW DOSE AND IS NOT HARMFUL. THE CHLORINE WILL BE QUICKLY DILUTED THROUGHOUT THE SYSTEM AND THE CHLORINE TASTE WILL GO AWAY. AGAIN, WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING. THE CITY’S GOAL IS TO PROVIDE THE SAFEST DRINKING WATER TO OUR CITIZENS.
