Posted March 1, 2004 7:56 a.m. EST

— Water in Raleigh will be treated a little differently beginning Monday.

For the next month, the city will not add ammonia to its water treatment. The change is a federal requirement to keep bacteria in the water from becoming ammonia-resistant.

The town of Cary will do the same.

Raleigh also starts charging a monthly

stormwater utility fee

on all property within city limits beginning March 1.
