The City uses recommended amounts of chlorine to remove microorganisms from the water. Edina maintains its chlorine level between .05 and .08 parts per million. We test the water every day to make sure the levels are within national regulation guidelines. This level of chlorine is not harmful, but may smell offensive to individuals. An easy solution is to keep a container of water stored in your refrigerator. The chlorine gas dissipates very quickly, leaving no odor.
