What does Anaheim do to maintain good tasting water?
In Anaheim, we take several actions to ensure the water delivered to homes and businesses is of the highest quality. For example, we have replaced or relined hundreds of miles of old pipelines in recent years and established a systematic approach for flushing the system. In addition, we are installing new, deeper wells and removing older shallow wells, and we use ozone at our Lenain Treatment Plant, which helps eliminate taste and odor problems in treated water. While we do add chlorine to ensure the water remains bacteria-free, we add the lowest possible amount that will fulfill our objective.
