The following is from Gloucester County’s Administrator. It sounds great, but what about keeping the public informed?
Mr. Hogge –
Treatment Process Improvements at the Surface Water Plant have been designed, procured and awarded to address this issue. We will be converting from chlorination, using liquid chlorine, to chloramination using liquid chlorine and liquid ammonia. The project is currently under construction and we anticipate completion, and process conversion, by the end of 2017.
