Live in Wake County? Check Monday's Water

Posted February 27, 1999 6:00 a.m. EST

— Residents of Raleigh or western Wake County may notice some changes in the water Monday.

The Cary/Apex water plant and the Raleigh plant are flushing their systems, as well as conducting the annual disinfection process. This will run March 1 to April 1.

Normally, the water supply contains both ammonia and chlorine. For the next month, however, only chlorine will be added.

Residents may notice a chlorine odor and tap water could be slightly discolored.

People on kidney dialysis machines need to take note.

Also, make sure the water runs clean before washing white clothes.
