Annual Water System Maintenance Scheduled 11/11 - 11/25/2013 THIS NEWS ITEM EXPIRED 11/26/2013 AND IS NO LONGER ACTIVE AND MAY NOT REFLECT CURRENT INFORMATION! THIS INFORMATION IS FOR ARCHIVAL PURPOSES ONLY!
10/22/2013 The City of Shawnee uses chloramines that is a disinfectant used to treat drinking water. Chloramines are most commonly formed when ammonia is added to chlorine to treat drinking water. The typical purpose of chloramines is to provide longer-lasting disinfectant properties to the water treatment as the water moves through pipes to consumers. This type of disinfection is known as secondary disinfection.
Chloramines have been used by water utilities for almost 90 years, and their use is closely regulated. More than one in five Americans uses drinking water treated with chloramines. Water that contains chloramines and meets EPA regulatory standards is safe to use for drinking, cooking, bathing and other household uses. Using chloramines, a combination of chlorine and ammonia, in the treatment process helps reduce the amount of trihalomethanes. Trihalomethanes are byproducts formed when water is disinfected with chlorine, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
As part of our yearly maintenance program the water treatment plant is going to do a two week return to free chlorine treatment and flush fire hydrants from November 11th to November 25th, 2013.
This is a normal maintenance procedure, during this process your water will continue to be safe to drink. For questions about the change in treatment, contact Mike Nelson at the City of Shawnee Water Treatment Plant at (405) 273-0890. Expires:11/26/2013 Comments:
