The City of Harrison Public Works Department is completing the installation of a water softener and has rescheduled activation. Residents should bypass their home softeners during the first week of October.
The reverse osmosis system will process 1.5 million gallons per day, reducing hardness of tap water and corrosion of pipelines. The final softened water will be supplied at 140 mg/L of CaCo3, or 8 grains per gallon of hardness.
The City has prepared an FAQ document to help answer questions about integration with home water softeners.
The City's water plant provides safe drinking water for 13,000 residents and local businesses.
