Why is Kingsburg chlorinating its water now?

The City has been working towards chlorination for few years. The volatile organic compound (VOC) 1,2,3-trichlopropane (TCP) has been detected in three of the city’s seven water wells. The best available technology to adequately remove 1,2,3-TCP from drinking water is granulated active carbon (GAC). Granulated active carbon is not a new treatment technology, but rather an effective and tested technology that has been used for decades. The use of GAC requires chlorination.
