Beginning on OCTOBER 1st, 2022 continuing until MARCH 31st, 2023 Greene County will change to purchased water from GUC. The disinfectant used in the water treatment process at GUC will be chloramines rather than free chlorine during this period of time.
During the annual switch to chloramines, customers may notice a slight change in the taste or smell of their tap water. The mild chlorine taste and smell is normal and poses no health risk. Most customers will not need to take any precautions as the water remains safe to drink and is treated according to both state and federal standards. People and businesses that normally take special precautions to remove chloramines from tap water, such as dialysis centers, medical facilities and aquatic per owners, should take precautions during the temporary switch from free chlorine to chloramines.
