Public Announcement - Laguna Madre Water District on Chlorine
Laguna Madre Water District will be using a higher level of chlorine in the treatment of water beginning April 3, 2014 through April 22, 2014. During this time, you will notice a higher taste of chlorine. Seasonal climate changes sometimes cause a change in odor and taste in the water, to reduce or eliminate this process we use a higher level of chlorine in the water. This is a routine process that is normally applied on a quarterly basis. This process also disinfects the distribution system to a higher degree. This procedure is a safe process and it is recommended by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) that we conduct this process on a quarterly basis.
The Laguna Madre Water District has used this process for many years. In an effort to keep our customers informed, we have prepared this notice. We also want to assure all our customers that even though the water may have a stronger taste and smell of chlorine than usual it is perfectly safe to drink.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact our office at (956) 943-2626.

REASONS TO CONSERVE WATER
Conserving water can help increase profits.  Some of the financial benefits to consider when evaluating water conservation are:
1. Reduced costs—water costs account for 1–2 percent of a business’ overhead. Saving water can help reduce overhead costs.
2. Increase in future water prices—water prices are set to rise above inflation. Saving water now will reduce costs in the future.
3. Production efficiency—using water efficiently will make additional water available for future production.
4. Tax benefits—many government agencies and water utilities provide rebates, grants, and tax relief to encourage water conservation. Tax benefits keep money where it belongs, in your pocket.

In Texas, various tax exemptions can be given for:
a. Rainwater harvesting systems
b. Water recycling and reuse systems
c. Desalinization systems
d. Wastewater systems certified by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality
e. Brush control equipment designed to increase water availability
