The Eastland County Water Supply District (ECWSD) has announced that it will conduct a Free-Chlorine Burn-Out of the Eastland-Ranger Water System for the next 31 days, beginning on Tuesday, October 1, 2019 and ending on Friday, November 1, 2019. The burn-out will consist of changing our water disinfection from Chloramine to Free-Chlorine. Our staff will also be flushing water lines throughout the system during the burn-out period. Customers may notice a slight change in smell to a more chlorine smell, such as the odor you may notice around a swimming pool.  This is a routine maintenance procedure and will have no harmful effects.

This process will start October1, 2019.  Any Customers or facilities using sensitive water filtering systems, such as Hospital Labs, Dialysis Centers and Nursing Home facilities are advised to check your systems and make adjustments if necessary.

It is intended that the Free Chlorine conversion procedure will be completed on November 1, 2019, but we will also announce return to our normal treatment process in another Press Release once the procedure has been completed.

For further information on this, please contact Staff Water Supply at 620 W. Loop 254, Ranger, TX or 254-647-5133.
