Article on TAPintoElizabeth: ´New Jersey American Water Warns Residents of Temporary Treatment Change in Water Treatment Plants'

Elizabeth residents can experience a slight smell of chlorine in their water starting next week, as New Jersey American Water will be performing annual maintenance at the Raritan-Millstone and Canal Road Water Treatment plants.

As part of the routine maintenance, New Jersey American Water will temporarily change the water treatment process from a chloramine (combined) residual to free chlorine residual, which can cause a slight scent and taste of chlorine in customer’s water. This is normal and will only be temporary until the system maintenance is complete, New Jersey American Water assures. Customers who wish to reduce the taste of chlorine can place water in an uncovered glass container in the refrigerator overnight to dissipate chlorine faster.
