To improve Victoria's water quality, the treatment plant will convert its water disinfection process to free chlorine for the month of April.
While some taste and odor changes are possible, generally there are no noticeable changes in water quality resulting from the temporary change, according to a news release from the city.
Dialysis patients may need to change the pretreatment scheme for their dialysis machines as part of the conversion to free chlorine, according to the news release.
Also, people conditioning water for fish or aquariums may need to change their water pre-treatment processes.
The conversion is expected to end April 30, when water disinfection will return back to chloramines.
