Athens dealing with elevated haloacetic acids again

Athens LogoBy Michael V. Hannigan

The City of Athens sent out a notice this week that is is experiencing elevated levels of haloacetic acids in the drinking water (see below). This is the second time this year the City has issued such a notice.

This is a problem with organic matter (grass, leaves, etc.) interacting with chlorine during the water disinfection processing. I’ve been told the City is talking with AMWA about trying to get the intake valve at the lake moved deeper, to avoid getting so much organic matter sucked up in the first place, but that would be expensive so I’m not sure that is going to happen.

The City is also looking to rearrange some of the steps of the disinfection process so that the organic matter gets taken out of the system before the chlorine is added … but that takes state approval and you know how government red tape can be.
