Public Notice of Water Treatment Process Change
Posted Date: 12/1/2017

The City of Pittsburg is updating its process at the Water Treatment Plant to improve your tap water quality. This change will enhance the water you receive from your tap by adding a new treatment step to the raw water drawn from the Contra Costa Canal and City owned wells. The new process will use chlorine dioxide to oxidize the primary raw water before it undergoes conventional surface water treatment.

This change is expected to begin on or about December 1, 2017 and is not expected to adversely affect water quality. In fact, you may notice improvements to the odor and taste of your tap water. In an abundance of caution, this notice is intended to give additional detail to kidney dialysis patients and fish fanciers, breeders or pet shop owners who may want to take extra precautions because of the change.

Chlorine dioxide has been used safely in drinking water treatment applications in the US and Europe for many years.  We are here for your questions. If you need additional information, contact Jason Moser, Water Plant Superintendent at (925) 252-6997.
