Beginning on August 10, 2020 and continuing thru September 10, 2020 the City of Gladewater Water Department will be conducting a chlorine conversion of our public drinking water system. To improve water quality the City will be adjusting and turning off chemicals to achieve this chlorine conversion. During this 30-day temporary chlorine conversion period you may experience some of the following changes: taste, odor (chlorine or bleach smell), and clarity.
The City will be continuously monitoring the water during this conversion period and flushing our distribution system. During this process the water will remain safe to drink.
