Leaders of Albemarle County and the City of Charlottesville held a meeting to talk about water supply and an additive called Chloramine.
Chloramine is the combination of Amonia and Chlorine that's being recommended by the EPA to help clean the water.
Back in February, the Rivanna Water and Sewer Authority voted to use the chemical to clean Albemarle County water instead of just Chlorine. Many people are opposed to Chloramine because of health concerns, so the organization is taking a closer look.
"I'd like to hear from both of them, hear them actually debate and discuss this issue. Tell us about things that happened in other areas, give us some of the science behind it that they believe demonstrates that it is good or bad," said Ken Boyd, Albemarle County Supervisor.
Thursday, the RWSA held a community forum along with members of the Charlottesville City Council and the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors. The meeting was held at the Albemarle County Office Building.
