Bluebonnet Rural Water Corporation (BRWC), a subsidiary of Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative, serves approximately 1,094 water meters in northeast Washington County, TX, but had a water storage problem not unfamiliar to even the largest water utilities in Texas. Disinfectant residual stratification in a 2 million gallon tank was creating uneven levels of residual chloramine in the BRWC distribution system resulting in taste and odor issue as well as occasional nitrification events.
