What amount of chlorine is going into the Waimarama system? The initial dose rate is one part per million. This will be adjusted as the residual levels are monitored. What is the level Council is aiming for across the system? We are targeting a residual chlorine level of 0.7 parts per million (ppm). This will vary in the system depending on distance and location in the network. The Drinking Water Standards allow a range residual chlorine in the reticulation from a minimum 0.2 parts per million up to 1.5 ppm.
