Citizens Westfield Water Utility Changing Disinfectant

6/15/2015
 
INDIANAPOLIS - Starting Monday, June 15, Citizens Westfield will change the disinfectant used in its water supply from free chlorine to chloramine, which is the disinfectant used throughout the remainder of the Citizens water distribution system serving the 8-county area.
 
“Changing the Citizens Westfield disinfectant allows for additional water supplies to be integrated with the Westfield water system to improve system reliability and to support the increasing water demands of the growing community,” said Jeff Willman, Vice President, Water Operations for Citizens.
 
Most customers will not notice any change to the water.  It remains safe to drink and is treated according to both state and federal standards.  As with free chlorine, dialysis patients or other customers using reverse osmosis systems should verify their filters are working appropriately for the new chloramine disinfectant. In addition, customers with aquariums or sensitive plant species may need to take steps to remove the disinfectant prior to use. For more information, go to CitizensWestfield.com or contact Citizens at 924-3311.
 
Last month, Citizens opened its new $15 million Harbour Ground Water Treatment Plant near Morse Reservoir. With the installation of some new wells, the state-of-the-art facility will be able supply an additional 6 million gallons per day of water supply to growing areas of Hamilton County.
