The Eastland County Water Supply District (ECWSD) will conduct a FreeChlorine Burn-Out of the Eastland-Ranger Water System for the next 31 days, beginning on Tuesday, October 1, 2019 and ending on November 1, 2019. The burn-out will consist of changing our water disinfection from Chloramine to FreeChlorine. Our Public Works staff will also be flushing water lines throughout the city during the burn-out period. Customers may notice a slight change in smell to a more chlorine smell, such as the odor you may notice around a swimming pool. This is a routine maintenance procedure and will have no harmful effects.
We will start this process October 1, 2019. Any customers or facilities using sensitive water filtering systems, such as Hospital Labs, Dialysis Centers and Nursing Home facilities are advised to check your systems and make adjustments if necessary.
While we intend to complete the Free Chlorine conversion procedure on November 1, 2019, we will also announce return to our normal treatment process in another Press Release once the procedure has been completed.
