Goldsboro Will Use Chlorine To Disinfect Water During Florence

Due to potential impacts from Hurricane Florence, the City of Goldsboro will temporarily use free chlorine as the disinfectant in its drinking water system rather than chloramines. This conversion will take place beginning 8 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 13, and will continue through the duration of the hurricane/flood event. After hurricane/flood conditions have improved, the city will notify customers of the conversion back to chloramines.  This change is a routine practice in water treatment and will not affect the quality of drinking water. While the water will remain safe for drinking, bathing and cooking, chlorine should be removed from water prior to use in tropical fish tanks and in kidney dialysis machines.
