FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Beginning on Saturday, March 1, 2014, the Fayetteville Public Works Commission (PWC) and the Harnett County Public Utilities (HCPU) will temporarily stop adding ammonia to its water treatment disinfection process. The North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources requires all water systems that add ammonia to their drinking water to discontinue its use for a one-month period annually to ensure that any biological growth that may have occurred within the distribution system is controlled. PWC and HCPU will resume adding ammonia to the water treatment disinfection process on Tuesday, April 1, 2014.
During March, the Town of Spring Lake water customers may notice chlorine odor as a result of this change in the treatment process. Some users of water may also experience periods of discolored water as a result of the required distribution-system flushing that will accompany this change back to chlorine-only disinfection. Fire hydrants on the Town of Spring Lake water distribution system will be opened periodically throughout the month to flush the system. Water customers should be aware that during this time, traces of ammonia may still be in the water. Therefore, the Town of Spring Lake recommends that water customers, who pre-treat to remove chloramines prior to the water being used, could continue to do so.
The process of adding ammonia to the water treatment process helps to reduce disinfection by-products such as Trihalomethane. The one-month return to chlorine-only disinfection is not expected to cause any significant increases in disinfection by-products.
