Annual Chlorine Burnout End

The Chester Metropolitan District is concluding its annual Chlorine Burnout. Filter Plant personnel returned the system to Chloramines on Friday, March 1, 2019. 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.
