Does the City chlorinate its water?
No. Wells are the City’s primary source for culinary water, and they do not require system-wide chlorination. Some cities, however, are required to chlorinate water from sources such as natural springs. Once a month, the City of Cedar Hills conducts tank batching to prevent any bacterial growth in the storage facilities. Typically, the water in the City’s storage tanks is circulated at such a rapid rate that we do not see any bacterial growth. This monthly chlorine batching is done strictly as a precautionary measure and is not required by the State. Both of our current wells, Harvey and Cottonwood, are constructed in a way that they could accommodate future chlorination if required.
