Norwood Water Commission Update

The days of receiving drinking water safety violation notices from the Norwood Water Commission are over. On March 3rd, the commission switched to a new water treatment method. In order to increase the quality of drinking water in the Norwood water district, the commission will stop using chlorine to disinfect water. Instead, chloramines will be used to reduce the amount of trihalomethanes, a carcinogenic by-product that occurs when chlorine is mixed with organic matter in water.
