COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Columbus Water Works is adding phosphate to your water.

     The water supplier says this will actually improve water quality.

     This change allows Columbus Water Works to reduce the chlorine in the water, which they say is a huge benefit for Columbus residents who drink tap water

    "We are changing our ph level in our water by going with an erosion control product that's a phosphate based product rather than a lyme based product." Says Vice President Cliff Arnett

     This change allows Columbus Water Works to reduce the chlorine in the water, which, they say is a huge benefit for Columbus residents who drink tap water. "Chlorine has a tendency to develop over time;  things in the drinking water that aren't really desirable." Says Arnett

  Starting Monday June 21st, Columbus Water Works will begin putting the phosphate substance in the water. It will take approximately four days to reach homes

     Arnett says you will never notice the water has been changed. You cannot taste it or see a difference.
