Manganese in Treated Water Delivered by the Trinity River Authority.
Manganese is an essential trace nutrient for plants and animals and poses no health risk to humans. Manganese is also a naturally occurring substance and is present in the lake water treated by TRA.
This condition has occurred in past years and may also be associated with taste and odor issues. Ozone disinfection equipment is currently being installed in the TRA water treatment facility which will significantly reduce future water staining and taste and odor incidents.
While undesirable, manganese poses only aesthetic problems, which will ultimately pass through the distribution system and no longer be noticeable by the public.
