The City of Center Public Water System, PWS #2100001, will be conducting water system maintenance beginning January 3, 2017, and lasting until January 31, 2017. The system will be switching to free chlorine as its main disinfection.
This maintenance, which is not a requirement, but is the recommended course of action set by the TCEQ/EPA for the accumulation of disinfection byproducts.
This is a routine maintenance procedure performed to help reduce unstable water conditions in our system and insure the highest quality of water being delivered to our customers.
During this maintenance period you may notice an odor or slight discoloration, but the safety of the water will not be affected. City maintenance crews and the Fire Department will also be aggressively flushing hydrants throughout the City's distribution system.
If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact our Public Works Department at 936-598-5241.
