Annual Water System Maintenance Planned March 6 – April 3
February 26, 2023
Temporary change in water disinfectant is essential for safe drinking water.
The North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD) will temporarily change the disinfectant in its water treatment process from March 6 through April 3, 2023. The annual, routine change is necessary to maintain the regional system and year-round water quality. Disinfection involves a two-step process that first treats the water at the treatment plant and then chloramine disinfectant (chlorine + ammonia) is added to maintain water quality on its journey through the miles of pipes to homes and businesses. During the temporary change, NTMWD suspends adding ammonia and uses free chlorine to keep the water disinfected as it travels through pipes. Read the full news release here.
