Water might smell and taste different, Tampa Water Department will be changing its water disinfection process.
Don’t worry, it will only be for a temporary time. Just keep in mind March 16 – April 6, the department will use chlorine instead of chloramine to disinfect the water. Apparently this is a change that happens often for maintenance and used to optimize water quality. I never knew that this water disinfecting process also stops us from losing millions of gallons of drinking water to system flushing. WOW!
I don’t drink water directly from the sink faucet but it is good to know that my showers might smell different in the coming weeks.
