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 .
Please share this information with all people who drink this water , especially those who may not have received this notice directly ( i . e . , people in apartments , nursing homes , schools , and businesses ) . You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail .
If you have questions regarding this matter , you may contact Joe Downey , Guadalupe - Blanco River Authority , at ( 830 ) 875 - 2132 .
