Beginning Tuesday March 01, 2017 the City of Dunn will be temporarily changing the current disinfection process of the potable water from the use of Chloramines to Free Chlorine. The City of Dunn will resume the Chloramination process on Friday April 1, 2017. 

The State of North Carolina Division of Public Health recommends this change on an annual basis. During this time, the City will be flushing water lines for maintenance of the water transmission system. You may notice temporary pressure fluctuations, discoloration of the water, or the taste and smell of Chlorine in your water. The City's water supply will remain safe for consumption during this period. 

Water customers are reminded that residual traces of Ammonia and Chlorine must be removed from water prior to its use in Kidney Dialysis Equipment. Chlorine and Ammonia are also harmful to Fish Aquariums. 

Water customers affected by this change include those who pay water bills to the City of Dunn, areas of Harnett County that use the City of Dunn's water supply, as well as those who pay bills to Eastover Sanitary District, and the Towns of Benson, Falcon, and Godwin. 

If you have any questions about this change in water treatment or your water status, please feel free to contact Pamela Gibbons or Ian Stroud at the City's Filtering Plant at (910) 897-5129.
