Temporary Change in Disinfectant
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 is a critical part of the water treatment process that keeps drinking water free of harmful microorganisms, such as parasites and viruses. Individuals sensitive to chlorine may notice a stronger smell or taste for a few weeks.
Tips to minimize the chlorine odor, taste or skin sensitivity:
- Run the tap for a few minutes before using.
- Refrigerate water in an open pitcher for several hours.
- Add a slice of citrus/cucumber and let sit for several hours.
Bath or shower water
- Add a crushed 1000 mg vitamin C tablet to bathwater.
