Fire Hydrant Flushing and Water Disinfectant Change



The Town of Enfield Water Treatment Plant will temporarily change the method of disinfection in its public water supply beginning May 11th through May 25th.

For these two weeks, we will use Chlorine only. Free Chlorine is a stronger disinfectant than Chloramine.

As a result, users may experience a slight change in the aesthetics of their water during conversion, including a noticeable odor and slight discoloration. Most of these characteristics should lessen after the first few days and does not affect water quality or safety. You may also notice a change in taste in the water.

We apologize for any inconvenience, but this process helps ensure high-quality water in our distribution system components.

If you have any questions, please call Matt Little, Water Treatment Plant ORC, at (252) 445-1018.
