June - November For the summer months, the West View Water Authority switches to chloramines as the disinfectant to treat drinking water. it is formed by mixing chlorine with a small amount of ammonia. Chloramine has been used by water systems for almost 90 years and over 68 million American receive drinking water treated with chloramines. More about chloramines

November - June  For the winter months, the West View Water Authority switches from chloramines to free chlorine for the disinfection of drinking water. Free chlorine is a stronger and faster-acting disinfectant. Customers may notice a slight difference in the taste and odor of their drinking water while chlorine is in use.

  • Customers using tap water for at-home kidney dialysis should consult with their doctor to determine if any changes are necessary in their residual disinfectant neutralization procedures. 
  • Customers using the water for aquariums should monitor both free and combined chlorine residuals.
