Has your water tasted funny lately? You are not crazy if you think so.  New Jersey American Water has recently made an announcement that they are changing up the water treatment process and yes, it tastes weird.

I read in the Asbury Park Patch that you may taste more chlorine in the following areas:

Aberdeen

Allenhurst

Asbury Park City

Atlantic Highlands

Avon

Bay Head

Belmar

Bradley Beach

Colts Neck Township

Deal

Eatontown

Elberon

Fair Haven

Hazlet

Highlands

Holmdel Township

Interlaken

Keansburg

Lake Como

Little Silver

Loch Arbor Village

Long Branch City

Matawan

Middletown Township

Monmouth Beach

Neptune City

Neptune Township (incl. Ocean Grove)

Ocean Township

Oceanport

Red Bank

Rumson

Sea Bright

Shrewsbury

Shrewsbury Township

Tinton Falls

Union Beach

Wanamassa

West Long Branch

Personally, I have a filter in my fridge so I start off with that, then, to clean the water even more, I fill a Brita Pitcher with that filtered water and if that is not enough I'll put the uncovered pitcher in the fridge overnight like that Patch article suggests.

If the increased chlorine taste bothers you, don't worry!  This is just a temporary change as maintenance is underway.  Or, if the taste is really bothering you, you could just drink wine, beer, vodka, or margaritas instead!  It is Friday you know.  :-)
