If you had skin, respiratory and/or digestive problems that you couldn't get rid of before they switched to this temporary chlorine treatment, notice if they come back when the chloramine comes back into your tap water. We documented 300 people in my chloraminated water district who developed these symptoms after the change to chloramine More info. here: www.chloramine.org .

Chloramines are formed when chlorine comes in contact with organic compounds in the water. Learn a little more about the process, and post back

Simple question.........WHY? Can they please give us a reason? If I had a choice, I'd prefer that they not do it, so I think we should be told why they are deciding to do this.

Many, and I do mean many water treatment plants use chlorine for disinfection. there are other treatments, such as uV disinfection, ozonation, & a few others. the newer water treatment plants use ultraviolet disinfection, the Chlorine is taken out of the process. but this is very expensive and a decision by your city has to be made to install this unit. I am a licensed water treatment operator, but don't live anywhere around you. my question to you is what were they using when they aren't using Chlorine
