Chlorine Burnout to End

The Chester Metropolitan District is concluding its annual Chlorine Burnout. Filter Plant personnel will return the system to Chloramines on Wednesday, November 23, 2022. Customers should notice their water returning to normal within the next two to three weeks.

During this time, customers may continue to experience a stronger chlorine smell, and/or taste in their tap water. This is normal, and the water is still safe to drink. If the water is allowed to stand in a glass for several minutes before drinking, the chlorine smell/taste will dissipate.

If you have questions or concerns about this project, please call the CMD Office at (803) 385-5123.
