The Township of North Glengarry upgraded the Alexandria water treatment and distribution systems. This work includes the replacement of the storage stand pipe with a water tower, a new control and monitoring system referred to supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and replacing the chlorination disinfection system using chloramination. All of these upgrades will improve the reliability of water supply to the community.
Chloramination has been added to remedy the problem of low free chlorine residuals in the distribution system. It is also effective in reducing THM levels in the water. However, the presence of chloramines in water supplied to dialysis machines is known to present problems to patients if the water is not treated prior to entering the dialysis process. In addition pre-treatment to remove chlorine for dialysis purposes may not be effective in removing chloramines. It is recommended that all medical facilities adjust their patient treatment processes to account for the presence of chloramines. It is also recommended that all medical professionals warn their affected patients of this change. In addition all members of the public that use any form of dialysis should seek the opinion of a medical expert.
In addition chloramines also pose a threat to aquatic pets and water should be treated appropriately to remove the chloramines within any aquatic pets' environment.
