Historic City News has learned that the City of St. Augustine will be adjusting the chlorine and ammonia levels which may slightly change the taste of city water.
Beginning on Monday, May 11, and for the next 30 days, city water will be treated using a Free Chlorine residual instead of a Chloramine residual.
Chlorine and ammonia are used in the water treatment process to maintain disinfection of the water. Adjustment of the chlorine and ammonia levels for pipeline maintenance purposes is a standard operating practice recommended by the American Water Works Association.
For additional information, please contact the City of St. Augustine Water Treatment Plant at (904) 825-1044.
