Chlorination of Drinking Water

Schedule Update: The start-up of the City of Turlock's City-Wide Chlorination Project has been postponed from the initial start date of August 2021. The new chlorination system will now be functioning beginning May 17, 2023. The City will begin dosing the water with chlorine on an on-going basis to provide disinfection and protection from harmful bacteria, viruses, and microorganisms. Initially, the City will begin with a low dose of chlorine and gradually increase the dosage over a few months until the system reaches the desired chlorine dosage. There will be safeguards in place to ensure that the levels of chlorine in the water remain within the acceptable limits.
