The City of Cleburne initiated its temporary enhanced potable water disinfection process Sunday, July 31, 2022.
The City switched from disinfecting treated water with chloramine to a more potent free chlorine during this Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) approved process. The duration of the process will be 30 days.
The City has historically performed this treatment switch on a periodic basis so long-time residents may be familiar with the process. During this time, water customers may notice a slight chlorine odor and taste to the water. As always, the water remains safe for drinking, bathing, and other daily activities. Those with aquatic animals may need to apply further treatment to potable water. This is a temporary measure to continually provide quality consumable water.
Many water treatment plants, including Cleburne’s, normally treat water with chloramine, and the temporary conversion to free chlorine helps to improve the overall disinfection.
