Rosenberg to switch water disinfectant Dec. 5-19

Operators of the City of Rosenberg public water system will temporarily convert the disinfectant used in the distribution system from chloramine to free chlorine.

The conversion begins Dec. 5 and will continue through Dec. 19.

During this period, users may experience taste and odor changes associated with this type of temporary disinfectant conversion.

The water is safe to drink and use for cooking, bathing and other everyday uses.

Users of home kidney dialysis machines, owners of tropical fish aquariums and managers of stores and restaurants with fish and shellfish holding tanks are advised that the methods for testing and removing free chlorine residuals differ from those used for chloramine residuals.

Both types of residuals, if not handled properly, may affect users of kidney dialysis machines, as well as fish and other aquatic animals.

Anyone seeking more information can contact the city’s water utilities department at 832-595- 3400.
