As part of the City of Georgetown’s effort to assure the quality of the water system, the City will be temporarily changing the treatment chemistry used to purify the water. The change is made to eliminate a build-up of harmless biofilm in the water lines.
From February 1, 2021 until February 28, 2021, the city will stop the addition of ammonia at the Water Treatment Plant and disinfect with free chlorine. As a result you may detect a small change in the taste and smell of your water. We will resume adding ammonia on March 01, 2021 to the chlorine disinfectant at the treatment plant.
If you have any questions about these changes, please call the Water Treatment Plant at 843-545-4509.
We appreciate your understanding and support of this system maintenance process.
