On September 23, 2019, the City of Webster City Water Treatment Plant will begin its annual maintenance of the clarifier which is its water softening equipment. Softening of the water will be stopped until October 3, 2019.
The City of Webster City Water Treatment Plant will be changing the disinfectant that we use from chloramines to free chlorine as part of our maintenance program to assure the highest quality of drinking water is delivered to your home and business. As always the water is still very safe to drink. It is suggested to discontinue dishwasher use during this time.
Flushing of the distribution system will also occur during this maintenance work. Flushing of the distribution system is expected to last until October 4, 2019.
During this time you may notice a chlorine odor in your drinking water. You may also experience periods of discolored water as a result of the flushing. You can help alleviate this discoloration by turning on your faucets and running the water until it clears.
Kidney dialysis patients should follow your doctor’s recommendations. Medical centers that perform dialysis commonly remove the chloramines or chlorine that enters the dialysis machines. You should consult your physician if you have any questions or concerns regarding the use of water for dialysis.
Please contact the Water Plant at 515 832-9146 for further information or with any questions. You will be notified prior to the change back to chloramines.
