Temporary chlorination of Richmond's water as a precautionary step will continue until at least 22 May following a positive bacteria result, while a reservoir roof is repaired. The temporary chlorination started on 24 April. 

You may notice a chlorine taste in the tap water.

  • Don’t forget to neutralise the chlorine if you are topping up fish tanks
  • Using a carbon filter can remove the chlorine taste
  • Chilling the water in the fridge first and drinking it cold will also make it taste nicer
