Free Chlorine to Chloramine Conversion

July 8, 2021 4:41 am

Dear Harris County MUD #489 Resident,

The Harris County MUD 418 public water system, (PWS) ID 1013329, will convert the disinfectant used in the distribution system from free chlorine to chloramine in specific sections of Harris County MUD 489. The conversion will begin on Wednesday, July 14, 2021, and is meant to provide some relief on the demand at Water Plant #2. During this period, you may experience taste and odor changes associated with this type of disinfectant conversion.

Public water systems are required to properly disinfect their water and maintain an adequate disinfectant residual in the distribution system. Chloramine, free chlorine combined with ammonia, is widely used as a disinfectant because it persists for long periods, while also limiting the formation of disinfection by-product contaminants.

The sections that will be affected include:

  • Parkland Square
  • Mission Tejas
  • Enchanted Rock
  • Goose Island
  • McKinney Falls
  • Cedar Hill
  • Copper Breaks
  • Balmorhea

Please see attached maps.

Please reach out to Inframarkā€™s Customer Service at (281) 579-4500, should you have any questions or concerns.
