How does the City address increased Manganese levels?

The City utilizes a Manganese analyzer to identify spikes and react more quickly to elevated levels. The City adjusts its water treatment processes and flushes lines throughout the system to expedite removal of these minerals. While our treatment processes are able to effectively treat the Manganese levels most of the time, we tend to see spikes once or twice a year. When levels drastically rise, discoloration in the water can occur.
