Water Maintenance in Progress

Every year our water supplier makes a temporary change in the way they disinfect our drinking water.  This prepares their system for the heat and high demand of the spring and summer months.  It is a common practice in water systems throughout the nation.  The change in disinfection processes will last approximately 30 days.

From March 4 through April 1, 2019 customers may notice a stronger taste and smell of chlorine.  It is important to note that the quality of our drinking water remains safe for all uses, including drinking.  You may also notice more fire hydrant flushing around the city.  See the flushing location map here.

“Our licensed water technicians take daily water samples from throughout the city to consistently ensure that our water is safe,” said Managing Director of Garland Water Utilities, Wes Kucera.  (A link to NAP weekly sample readings is located at the top of this web page).

Garland Water Utilities purchases treated water from the North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD).  The water district draws their supply from Lavon Lake, Cooper Lake, Lake Tawakoni, Lake Texoma and a constructed wetland project located near Kaufman.
