Citizens Energy Group says some customers may notice a slight change in the taste and odor of their tap water.
A temporary change in the type of chlorine Citizens uses to treat our water supply will be made Friday, Jan. 27. Some customers may notice a slightly stronger chlorine odor in their tap water as a result. In a press release, Citizens says the type of chlorine will be temporarily changed from chloramine to free chlorine as a preventative maintenance procedure; and that the procedure is commonly used throughout the drinking-water industry. The change will continue until March.
Citizens says the tap water is still safe to drink and meets all regulatory requirements. Customers conducting dialysis treatment or other customers using reverse osmosis systems should verify their filters are working appropriately for the type of chlorine used. Customers with aquariums or sensitive plant species may need to take steps to remove all types of chlorine prior to use.
