The Monroeville Municipal Authority (MMA) Chlorine Disinfection Process

**SEPTEMBER 1, 2021, thru beginning of APRIL 2022**

Beginning on September 1, 2021, and continuing thru the beginning of April 2022, the MMA’s finished water supplier will be providing MMA customers with drinking water disinfected with chlorine instead of chloramines. The change is necessary to maintain the proper bacteriological quality of our drinking water.

While most customers will not notice any change in their water, some might notice a taste and odor of chlorine. The switch also means that kidney dialysis facilities or home dialysis units may need modifications depending on their method of chlorine removal. Home dialysis users should consult their physician or dialysis machine manufacturer for instructions. Fish owners should consult their local pet store for recommended products that will remove chlorine prior to use.

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.
