Chemicals called disinfectants are added to drinking water at the treatment plants. Chloramines, the combination of ammonia and chlorine, form a stable bond that keeps a disinfectant residual throughout the entire distribution system. During the spring months, Spotsylvania County Utilities performs annual flushing with free chlorine instead of chloramines. Free chlorine is strong disinfectant that aids in the disinfection of the flushed water mains.
