Is there Chloramine in our water?

Does anyone know if there's Chloramine in our tap water? Doesn't seem so according to online searches but just want to make sure.

Nope. Just chlorine. Google "NY State water report" for more information.

Yeah you can. But I'd dechlorinate just as a precaution.

The concern with flouride is with human consumption if you do not filter it out.
