City to extend pilot study on water treatment process

staff testing water

Water quality will not be affected

The City of St. Augustine is extending the pilot study to test the effectiveness of discontinuing the use of chloramines (ammonia) in the City’s water treatment process. The original study that began on Tuesday, January 5, 2021 was scheduled to conclude on Tuesday, April 6, 2021.  However, it will be extended 90 additional days and will now be completed in early July 2021.

During the pilot study, the City will discontinue the use of the ammonia feed system and utilize only free chlorine for disinfection. This process is similar to the regular adjustment periods conducted throughout the year.

Please note, City utility customers may continue to notice a slight change in the taste of their water, but the quality of the water is still not affected.

For additional information, contact the City of St. Augustine Water Treatment Plant at 904.825.1044.
