Lacey History Month – Chlorine

June 22nd, 2015 by Ken

In June 2004, the City of Lacey added chlorine to its water supply for the first time.  Four months earlier routine tests had detected coliform bacteria in the water supply.    While Olympia had added chlorine to its water for years, Lacey residents prided themselves on their sweet tasting city water.   The addition of chlorine resulted in safe drinking water but an up-surge in the  purchase of  bottled water by Lacey residents.
