Water Distribution System Disinfectant Notice

The City of Cameron public water system, {PWS} ID 1660001, will temporarily convert the disinfectant used in the distribution system from chloramine to free chlorine. The conversion will begin on Monday, July 08, 2024 and continue through Monday, July 22, 2024. During this period, you may experience taste and odor changes associated with this type of temporary disinfectant conversion.

Public water systems are required to properly disinfect their water and maintain an adequate disinfectant residual in the distribution system. Chloramine, free chlorine combined with ammonia, is widely used as a disinfectant because it persists for long periods while also limiting the formation of disinfection by-product contaminants. Prolonged use of chloramine coupled with other factors that can impact water quality, such as high temperatures or stagnation of water, may result in the growth and/or persistence of organic matter within the pipes of the distribution system, which may hinder the ability to maintain an adequate disinfectant residual. A temporary conversion to free chlorine, partnered with flushing activities, helps to rid distribution pipes of this organic matter and improve the quality of your water overall.

City of Cameron as chosen to implement a temporary disinfectant conversion to free chlorine based on the following: This common practice is used as preventive maintenance -Gl-466.

Se requiere que los sistemas publicos de agua desinfecten adecuadamente su agua y mantengan un residua de desinfectante adecuado en el sistema de distribucion. La cloramina, cloro libre combinado con amonfaco, se usa ampliamente como desinfectante porque persiste durante largos perfodos y al mismo tiempo limita la formacion de contaminantes derivados de la desinfeccion. El uso prolongado de cloramina junta con otros factores que pueden afectar la calidad del agua, como las altas temperaturas o el estancamiento del agua, puede provocar el crecimiento y/o la persistencia de materia organica dentro de las tuberfas del sistema de distribucion, lo que puede dificultar la capacidad de mantener un residua de desinfectante adecuado. Una conversion temporal a cloro libre, junta con actividades de lavado, ayuda a eliminar esta materia organica de las tuberfas de distribucion y mejorar la calidad de su agua en general.
