This might be the last water report I post. I'm switching to a simpler water treatment technique using 100% RO and no longer need these number for my spreadsheet. Does anyone even use this info?

Thanks Chris, according to Brewer's Friend water calculator a 1tsp of gypsum is needed to balance out that water chemistry :beer9

**MEDIA ADVISORY**
Evansville Water will temporarily change disinfection
Evansville, IN. - Beginning May 16 and continuing until June 12, 2016, the Evansville Water and Sewer Utility (EWSU) will temporarily change the disinfectant used in the water treatment process. EWSU will be using free chlorine rather than the regularly used disinfectant (chloramine) during this time period. This is the first of two such temporary switchovers, with the second one coming in August. A separate notice for that second switchover will also be issued.

Beginning next Monday, June 13, Evansville Drinking Water Filter Plant will be returning to our normal disinfection process using “chloramines” and discontinuing the “free chlorine” disinfection that began May 16.

We will once again be switching to free chlorine in August and running for approximately one month. I will send notice for that later this summer. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this required annual process.
