NOTIFICATION UPON CHANGING CHLORINE AND AMMONIA TO FREE CHLORINE

Public Notice Water Chlorinate

*NOTIFICATION UPON CHANGING CHLORINE AND AMMONIA TO FREE CHLORINE*


The Kempner Water Supply Corporation, PWS #1410028, along with the City of Lampasas, PWS#1410001, and Salado Water Supply, PWS #1410035 will temporarily convert the disinfectant used in the distribution system from chloramine to free chlorine. The conversion will begin on February 15, 2020 and continue through March 15, 2020. During this period, you may experience taste and odor changes associated with this type of temporary disinfectant conversion.

Public water systems are required to properly disinfect their water and maintain an adequate disinfectant residual in the distribution system. Chloramine, free chlorine combined with ammonia, is widely used as a disinfectant because it persists for long periods while also limiting the formation of disinfection by-product contaminants. Prolonged us of chloramine coupled with other factors that can impact water quality, such as high temperatures or stagnation of water, may result in the growth and/or persistence of organic matter within the pipes of the distribution system, which may hinder the ability to maintain an adequate disinfectant residual.

A temporary conversion to free chlorine, partnered with flushing activities, helps to rid distribution pipes of the organic matter and improve the quality of your water overall. Kempner Water Supply, the City of Lampasas and the City of Salado have chosen to implement a temporary disinfectant conversion to free chlorine based on the decision of Central Texas Water Supply Corp. to implement a free burn of their water system.

Please share this information with all people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly. This notice will be posted on our website:

If you have any questions regarding this matter, you may contact Rickie Roy, Director of Public Works, at (512)556-6831.
