Notifying Customers of Blending Chlorine and Chloramine Disinfectants

Find instructions and sample wording to complete required notices if your public water system blends its distribution disinfectant of free chlorine with the chloramine disinfectant, as well as to whom and when to send the notices.


If you plan to blend or currently blend free chlorine and chloramines as residual disinfectants in your public water system, you must request and receive approval from the TCEQ for an exception to blend free chlorine and chloramines. Once the exception has been approved, you must notify the community and your retail and wholesale customers at least 14 days before you start blending free chlorine and chloramines. This information is important to anyone who is on dialysis.

Remind your wholesale customers that they must also notify their own customers of this change. They may have to change the type and amount of disinfectant they use in their own water systems.

Here is the language you must use to complete the public notice:
