NTMWD 28 Day Chlorine Maintenance

The North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD) will conduct a chlorine maintenance of its transmission system and its customers’ distribution systems, including the City of Rowlett, from March 13 – April 10.

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) allows water suppliers to perform chlorine maintenance to help reduce the need for water suppliers to flush systems in order to maintain chloramine residual (required by the TCEQ) during the warm weather periods, thus conserving water. 

The NTMWD utilizes chloramines, a combination of chlorine and ammonia, to provide the disinfectant residual in the transmission and distribution systems as required by the TCEQ. Chloramines provide a longer lasting residual disinfection in water pipelines and storage facilities. Although chlorine maintenance does not affect water safety or quality, during this period, consumers who are sensitive to taste and odor in drinking water might notice a change.
For additional information, please refer to the chlorine maintenance fact sheet and the NTMWD water quality reports at the link below.
