NOTICE FROM OSCEOLA WATER WORKS REGARDING WATER QUALITY CONCERNS

water taste, water smell, osceola water

We have recently received complaints regarding the taste and odor of our water.  At this time, Osceola Water Works is going through some changes to the disinfectant in use. Normally, our water system uses something called chloramines for disinfecting the drinking water. Periodically, we switch to free chlorine (or breakpoint chlorination), which is a stronger disinfectant. Free chlorine is used while the water system prepares to flush the distribution system. Due to the weather, we have not been able to flush the system.  Flushing the water mains improves water quality by removing sediment that slowly builds up in the water

This process allows OWW to perform routine maintenance on the hydrants and to clean out sediment that has settled in the water mains. Department employees will open the fire hydrants and allow them to flow freely for a short period of time. Residents may notice a slight discoloration or trace amounts
