Citizens Temporarily Changing Disinfectant in Water

INDIANAPOLIS - A temporary change in the type of chlorine Citizens Energy Group uses to treat our water supply will be made tomorrow, Friday, January 27. Some customers may notice a slightly stronger chlorine odor in their tap water as a result. The type of chlorine will be temporarily changed from chloramine to free chlorine as a preventative maintenance procedure to assure the quality of our drinking water. This procedure is commonly used throughout the drinking-water industry. The change will continue until March.

Tap water is still safe to drink and meets all regulatory requirements. Customers conducting dialysis treatment or other customers using reverse osmosis systems should verify their filters are working appropriately for the type of chlorine used.  Customers with aquariums or sensitive plant species may need to take steps to remove all types of chlorine prior to use.
