FARMERSBURG, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — The Indiana American Water Company announced they will be switching their water treatment method on Monday.

According to information from Indiana American Water, while the distribution team was completing their annual flushing of the hydrant systems, the treatment method for water in the Terre Haute and Farmersburg area was changed. 

The company said they will “switch treatment back from a form of chlorine known as ‘free chlorine’ back to our regular treatment using chloramine disinfection. As a result, customers may notice a decreased chlorine taste or odor in their water.”

Indiana American Water notes that the lessened smell and taste of chlorine in the water is to be expected and is not a concern.
