Notice of Temporary Change in Water Disinfection Process

Starting July 20th, the Garnett Water Treatment Plant will be changing it disinfection process from chloramines (chlorine and ammonia) to free chlorine (no ammonia added) for a few weeks in order to better disinfect dead end lines and lines that see very little water usage.  Once this is done we will switch back to chloramines. You may or may not notice a slight change in taste and odor. Flushing of lines and overflowing of the water towers will also be done at this time.  This is a common practice done in most communities in order to maintain safe disinfection levels.  Thank you for your patience and consideration while we go through this process to insure the safety of your drinking water.

This message is provided by the City of Garnett Water Treatment Department who supplies and treats water for the city of Garnett and surrounding rural areas, including the City of Greeley and Anderson County Rural Water Districts.

Recycling Trailer - 2nd Tuesday in Garnett
Garnett area citizens are invited to participate in the Anderson County Recycling Program. A recycling trailer is staged in the Country Mart parking lot on the second Tuesday of each month, courtesy of the Anderson County Landfill/Recycling Center. Items to be dropped into the designated bins:
- #1-#7 plastic bottles, preferably washed out;
- Glass bottles and glass containers, preferably washed out;
