So, customers of Grundy County Public Water Supply District----just like TMU customers---will be affected by TMU's new treatment process scheduled to begin next Tuesday.

The process includes changing disinfection from chlorine to chloramines. It's part of TMU efforts to meet government standards for trihalomethane levels.

The Grundy County Public Water Supply District has informational flyers at the Water District office at 4100 Oklahoma Avenue in Trenton. Customers also may telephone the Public Water Supply District at its Trenton office.

Chloramine disinfection is a process in which a small amount of ammonia is added to the water that's been pre-treated with chlorine.

TMU has said chloraminated water is safe for drinking, bathing, cooking, and all other everyday uses. However, kidney dialysis patients need to take special precautions.
Persons reliant kidney dialysis were asked to check with their dialysis provider to make sure they are aware of the changes.

TMU also was encouraging its customers who are reliant on dialysis to notify TMU so the utility can make special contact with those persons when the changes are implemented.

Like chlorine, chloramines are toxic to fish and must be removed from the water. Pet stores carry the needed supplies.
