Newell Regional Services has completed testing of the ammonia injection system, at the Water Treatment Plant.

Ammonia is injected to the water system as water leaves the Water Treatment Plant to change the disinfection process to chloramines.
We are satisfied that the system will react to changes in flow conditions and provide correct dosing to ensure correct water quality.
However, at certain low flow conditions (eg-night time flows) Newell Regional Services is not satisfied with the testing results and as a result will not be switching to chloramines, at this time.
 In order to protect the health and safety of residents we will not be proceeding with the change to chloramines until mid-August.
Newell Regional Services Corporation had previously announced that the switch would occur on June 4.
Newell Regional Services Corporation apologizes for any inconvenience but in order to provide safe drinking water to residents within the City of Brooks and the County of Newell, we have made this decision.
Further information will be provided to the public as to when the change to chloramines will occur.
