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:
Asbury Park City
Colts Neck Township
Loch Arbor Village
Long Branch City
Neptune Township (incl. Ocean Grove)
West Long Branch
You can read more details here.
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. :-)
