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:

Drinking water

  • 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.
