We will be switching our Potable water disinfection over to Free Chlorine from April 15 through June 30 as part of our annual distribution flushing program.  On Sunday, April 15, we will take our Ammonia feed system offline and begin to flush hydrants throughout the City.   In Prince George County, we will be flushing the subdivisions:  Birchett Estates, Cedar Creek, Cedar Creek West, and Strattford Woods.  After we complete the flushing, the ammonia feed will be placed back online and we will be back to normal disinfection with chloramines.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
