Notice of Chlorine Burnout

The Chester Metropolitan District will be turning off the Ammonia in the system beginning Friday, February 3, 2017 and will run straight chlorine disinfection for approximately one month. This process helps to keep the system disinfected and reduce the chances of bacteriological growth in water lines with lower flows.

CMD personnel will begin flushing lines the week of February 6, 2017.  Customers may see fire hydrants standing open – this is part of the process, and will be monitored by employees.

During this time, customers may also 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.

Notice of Fire Hydrant Testing

 

CMD Logo

Chester Metropolitan District will be performing fire hydrant testing January 25, 2017 through January 31, 2017.

All testing is done by District personnel. The goal of this testing is to assure a reliable water distribution system, aid in planning future projects for our Capital Improvements Program, and provide data on how the system will perform in the event of a high flow situation, such as a fire. The fire hydrant testing includes capturing flow readings, flushing of the fire hydrant and line, and documenting any inefficiency found. During these tests, sediment may be stirred up which may result in discoloration or suspended particles in the water. Citizens who experience any unusual water clarity problems after the hydrants are flushed are encouraged to turn on a cold-water faucet outside of the house and let it run for 5 to 10 minutes. This will normally clear up the agitated water from the service line to the home. Sediment can accumulate in the lines which can cause discoloration in laundry. It is recommended to check that both the hot and cold laundry water is clear before washing. A slight decline in water quality is common immediately after fire hydrant testing has occurred. If water quality does not improve or further problems occur, contact Chester Metropolitan District by calling 803-385-5123.
