[ARCHIVED] Notice of Annual Water Treatment from April 12 to 26, 2021

Gulf Coast Water Treatment 2021

Gulf Coast Water Authority (GCWA), will temporarily change its water disinfection process from a combination of Chlorine and Ammonia (Chloramine) to Chlorine only between April 12 to 26, 2021.

Gulf Coast Water Authority (GCWA), will temporarily change its water disinfection process from a combination of Chlorine and Ammonia (Chloramine) to Chlorine only between April 12 to 26 ,2021. 


This annual routine maintenance practice allows GCWA and the municipalities and water districts they serve the opportunity to flush their water systems to prevent taste and odor problems that can occur during the hottest months of the year. 


All Galveston County municipalities and water districts except League City, Friendswood and Bolivar will be impacted, including the City of La Marque.

 

As part of the disinfection process, city crews will flush our distribution systems by opening fire hydrants during the maintenance period. 


Owners of fish and reptiles should follow standard water treatments using products that remove both chlorine and chloramine from the water.


Dialysis centers will continue to treat the water to remove all chemical disinfectants, including chlorine and chloramine, before the water is used for dialysis. Home dialysis users should consult their machine manufacturers for instructions.


For information, visit the city website or follow Gulf Coast Water Authority on Facebook and Twitter.
