How does EBMUD protect creeks and other waterways from the disinfection chemicals in the leaking water?
EBMUD uses chloramine, a mix of chlorine and ammonia, to disinfect its drinking water. Chloramines are necessary for delivering water that is safe for humans, but they are not good for fish. EBMUD uses fabric mats with treatment tablets to remove chloramine from water released from pipe breaks and broken hydrants before it reaches storm drains, nearby streams or the Bay.
