The water in Midland might have a strange smell or change colors beginning on Monday and throughout the rest of the month as the city cleans its water supply.

A routine maintenance on the water distribution system that uses chlorine will begin on Monday.

The city said they will use Chloramine, a combination of chlorine and ammonia, which is normally used to disinfect public water supplies.

“This preventative measure will ensure safe drinking water by temporarily changing the method used to disinfect the water supply,” the city said in a statement. “Hydrants around town will also be flushed throughout the month of June in order to maintain water clarity and quality in the distribution pipes.”

The city says the cleaning “may cause the water to have “chlorine odor,” like water in a swimming pool, and slight discoloration.”

They also said that some residents might not experience any changes to their water.
