In a continuing effort to distribute high quality water, the following water utilities: Archdale, Burlington, Greensboro, High Point, Jamestown, Randleman, Reidsville, and the Piedmont Triad Regional Water Authority, will conduct a routine Water Quality Preventative Maintenance Program beginning on April 14, 2014 and running through May 11, 2014.
The Water Quality Preventative Maintenance Program will involve temporarily switching water disinfectants from the present chloramines to chlorine in order to optimize water quality within the distribution systems. This temporary process change is strongly recommended by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the State to preserve water quality by ensuring persistent disinfection levels exist throughout the water distribution system.
During the Preventative Maintenance Program, some water customers may notice temporary taste, color or odor differences in their water. This is a normal component of the process and customers should be reassured that water quality is not affected.
Both chlorinated and choraminated water is safe for drinking, bathing, cooking, and other general uses. There are three groups, however, that need to take special precautions during the Water Quality Preventative Maintenance Program: kidney dialysis patients and providers, fish, pond, pool and aquarium owners and operators, and some business that use water in their production process. Those who fall in to any of the above categories are strongly encouraged to seek professional advice concerning the removal methods for chlorine and chloramines.

Burlington and Alamance County Global Youth
Service Day projects will include the Alamance County District Attorney Pat
Nadolski’s anti-cyberbully initiative and North Carolina State Superintend Dr.
June Atkinson’s Give 5-Read 5 “campaign. Hundreds of local youth will participate
in service projects being held in seven different counties (Alamance, Buncombe,
Durham, Guilford, Orange, Wayne, and Wilkes) . In total, an estimated 1,000 North
Carolina youth will participate in Global Youth Service Day activities.
SCALE has mobilized a coalition of local and regional nonprofits,
community groups and schools to participate in Global Youth Service Day activities.
Current partners are listed below. Our state’s young people, from kindergarten
to college, will join millions of others around the world for Global Youth
Service Day, April 12, 2014. Now in its 26th year, Global Youth
Service Day recognizes the positive impact that young people have on their
communities 365 days a year. As the largest service event in the world, Global
Youth Service Day is celebrated in more than 100 countries and all 50 states.
County District Attorney Pat Nadolski, the NC LiteracyCorps, and the City of Burlington
are partners for Global Youth Service Day, the event will include literacy and
service based activities and will highlight our local youth led service acts. North Carolina State superintendent Dr. June
Atkinson and North Carolina State Senator Rick Gunn are keynote speakers for
Attorney Pat Nadolski released this statement about to GYSD: “The collaboration
between the North Carolina Literacy Corps, the City of Burlington and Alamance
County District Attorney’s Office for Global Youth Service Day is the result of
an existing cyberbullying awareness/prevention initiative created three years
ago by my office and the efforts of the North Carolina Literacy Corps and the
City of Burlington to incorporate that existing initiative into a youth driven
project. This event empowers the youth of Burlington to define and discuss the
dangers of cyberbullying and to articulate to their community that this is an
issue that they wish to prevent and eliminate.”
“We are looking forward to honoring and celebrating the many youth in Alamance
County for their commitment to service and volunteerism,” said North Carolina
LiteracyCorps Program Director, Nikki Glenos. “The NC Day of Reading on Global
Youth Service Day will highlight the countless ways in which our young people
contribute to literacy advocacy and activism in their community.”
