How can I be sure my water tastes/looks how it’s supposed to?

free chlorine conversion

Check out our chart – at the beginning and end of the process, it’s expected to experience a musty/earthy taste or smell – this will occur for 3-4 days around August 22 and September 12. As the chlorine makes its way through the system, a chlorine smell or taste is normal. You can expect this to last from approximately August 29-September 11. If you notice the musty/earthy odor or smells or something different than chlorine, please report it to 311 and crews can come out and flush.
