FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Why is the treatment change needed? It allows us to perform necessary maintenance on our chemical feed systems and our distribution system.
Is this an approved method of treatment? Yes. Both are approved methods of disinfection by the PA Department of Environmental Protection.
Will I notice a change in my water service? When we transition the disinfection process from chloramines to chlorine, some customers may notice an increase in the taste and smell of chlorine in the water. This will only be temporary while we complete this system maintenance.
Is the water safe to drink? Yes, as always, we will continue to monitor the water quality to ensure that it meets or surpasses all federal and state drinking water standards.
