Read about the City of Richmond’s change in disinfectant use from chlorine to chloramines to disinfect public drinking water.
This change from chlorine to chloramines is necessary as Richmond transitions to use of legislatively mandated surface water. This transition is intended to reduce levels of regulated disinfection byproducts (DBP’s) in the system, while still providing protection from waterborne disease.
The change from Chlorine to Chloramines can impact people dependent on dialysis machines.
