The Seneca Falls Water Department has temporarily discontinued Chloramines as of 8/11/17 as the disinfectant treatment process for our water supply. Due to the continued and unusual temperature of Cayuga Lake it is necessary for us to continue with Free Chlorine. This is a temporary change, and as soon as the lake temperature returns to normal we will gradually return to the Chloramines treatment process. Quality water is a vital to our residents and businesses. The only change you may notice is a stronger chlorine odor while we are using the Free Chlorine disinfectant process. The quality of our water will not change. As always, we want to keep you updated and informed about your drinking water. If you have questions or concerns, please contact us at 315-568-6211.
