The disinfection process for drinking water changed from chlorination to chloramination in early summer 2011 for the Piedmont Triad Water Authority, and the cities of:
  • Archdale
  • Burlington
  • Greensboro
  • Jamestown
  • High Point
  • Randleman
  • Reidsville
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 3 groups should take special precautions when using chloraminated water:
  • Fish, pond, and amphibian owners
  • Kidney dialysis patients
  • Specialized businesses
Other Improvements
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.
