The Tisbury Water Works (TWW) department announced Wednesday it will be performing maintenance activities on the town water system for the next few weeks. That will include adding chlorine to the water for disinfection purposes, according to a press release.
“Chlorine is a common chemical used in many public drinking water systems for disinfection,” TWW said. “Our target applied dosage will be 1 part per million or 1 milligram per liter. This dosage is a typical dosage for public drinking water systems and we are working closely with the Department of Environmental Protection. You may notice a different taste or odor as a result of the chlorine dosage. However, our water has been and will continue to be safe to drink.”
TWW said residents do not need to take any specific actions and stressed it is not an emergency situation. For more information, call 508-693-3100 or go to tisburyma.gov/Pages/TisburyMA_WaterWorks.
