Information on Water Disinfection with Chloramines, Effective September 1st, 2015
Chloramines are no more aggressive than chlorine, but chloramines are a more stable way to disinfect water.
Supplemental Water arrived in Nipomo from the City of Santa Maria on July 2, 2015. As of September 1, 2015 the disinfectant in the District’s water supply switched from chlorine to chloramine – a quick, effective, and safe method of water disinfection. This is done to reduce the potential for formation of regulated disinfection byproducts in the District water supply and to maintain consistency with the supplemental water received from the City of Santa Maria. More information below.
