Introducing Chloramines


The cities of Archdale, Burlington, Greensboro, Jamestown, High Point, Randleman, Reidsville, and the Piedmont Triad Water Authority changed its disinfection process for drinking water from chlorination to chloramination in early summer 2011.

This conversion is being implemented to ensure all continue to meet or exceed water quality regulations. In particular, the Stage 2 Disinfectant/Disinfection Byproducts Rule, recently announced by the federal government, places more stringent standards on drinking water quality. Chloraminated water is safe for everyday use, however three groups should take special precautions when using chloraminated water: kidney dialysis patientsfish, pond, and amphibian owners, and specialized businesses.  

In addition, the partnership will continue to seek methods for the improvement of the quality of the water provided to all consumers. Chloraminated water will provide improvements in taste and odor reduction, as the chlorine smell and taste will be less apparent. This effort is coordinated with other local water providers in a regional partnership.
