People living in Sauk Rapids should know the city is switching its water supply system next week.
Sauk Rapids says it has two different water systems and will be switching back to the original split arrangement. One part of the split will be a free chlorine system and the other is with chloramine.
Chloramine is a chemical compound that’s added to drinking water to disinfect and kill germs, according to the Center for Disease Control.
Most people will not notice the switch. However, folks with fish tanks are encouraged to use carbon fake watches for sale filtration equipment or treatments that neutralize the chemical. At home kidney dialysis patients may also need to take extra precautions. Chloramine is harmful when it directly enters the bloodstream. Sauk Rapids provides more information on their website.
The switch is scheduled for Thursday, June 9. The Sauk Rapids Utility Department will answer questions at 320-258-5318.
