Getting a taste for change

A drop-in information session on September 11 will allow Myponga residents to get a taste of upcoming improvement to the quality and aesthetics of the town’s drinking water.

SA Water will host an interactive information session at the Myponga Town Hall between 7 and 8.30 pm next Tuesday.

SA Water’s senior manager water expertise Dr Daniel Hoefel said Myponga residents should drop-in to learn about the upcoming disinfection process change, and experience the way it will improve the taste of their tap water.

“Some of our customers tell us they detect a residual note of chlorine, which is used to disinfect the water and kill any pathogens,” Mr Hoefel said.

“Changing to chloramine ensures the water remains clean and safe to drink, but with a slightly different – improved – flavour profile.

“We’ve road-tested chloraminated Myponga water with a specialist water tasting panel who preferred it to the current chlorine treated reservoir water, so we’re confident our customers will notice an improvement too.”
