The City of Victoria will temporarily change its water disinfection process starting Tuesday, June 1, but most residents will not notice a difference.
The City will disinfect its water using chlorine rather than chloramines for approximately one month. Consuming the water does not carry any health risks. However, dialysis patients may need to change their pretreatment schemes for their dialysis machines.
Anyone conditioning water for fish or aquariums may need to change their pretreatment processes as well.
This temporary change will improve water quality. Residents likely will not notice any difference, although some changes in taste and odor are possible.
