Public Drinking Water Chloramine Conversion
The City of Richmond will be changing the disinfectant that we use from chlorine to chloramines to disinfect its public drinking water in September 2017. This change from chlorine to chloramines is necessary as Richmond transitions to the use of legislatively mandated surface water. This transition is intended to benefit our customers by reducing the levels of regulated disinfection byproducts (DBP's) in the system, while still providing protection from waterborne disease. Please visit our Water Department page for more information.
