LITTLE ELM, TX (Feb. 12, 2019) The Town of Little Elm water supplier North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD) is planning to perform its annual system maintenance from March 4 to April 1.
As part of the regular disinfecting process, chloramine, a combination of chlorine and ammonia, is added to the water to maintain water quality.
During the annual system maintenance period, the NTMWD will suspend adding ammonia and only add chlorine during the water treatment process.
NTMWD performs this annual maintenance in order to maintain the regional system and year round water quality and keep the water safe from illness-causing microorganisms, such as parasites and viruses.As Little Elm gets its water from the NTMWD, residents may notice a more distinct chlorine smell or taste to tap water; however, water remains safe for use and consumption.
"Our water is safe for consumption and meets all regulatory guidelines. When the annual system maintenance period ends any taste or smell issues experienced should disappear," said Andrew Figueroa, Town of Little Elm Utility Manager.
