MAY 8th, 2020 - Chloramine Conversion Process Update Notice
In March 2020 the water supplied by the City of Craig will be treated with monochloramine. With this change, our customers will receive drinking water with improved taste and odor that meets or surpasses stringent standards set by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA). The use of chloramines is becoming more popular in the United States as an alternative for chlorine during the disinfection of drinking water. Chloramines have been used as a disinfectant in domestic water since 1917.
Chloramines are a combination of chlorine (Cl2) and ammonia (NH3) which is responsible for reducing the amount of disinfection by-products called trihalomethanes. Trihalomethanes are formed when chlorine mixes with trace quantities of naturally occurring organic substances found in raw water.
We want to ensure the public that this change is for the benefit of our customers and their families. The use of chloramines helps maintain consistent water quality throughout the entire distribution system. Aquarium owners and dialysis patients should take special note of the change and follow the proper procedures discussed below.
