Can I drink water when it smells like chlorine?

The dosage of chlorine-based disinfectant products serves to prevent the development of microbiological organisms within the drinking water distribution network. The quantities introduced are normally lower than the legal limits laid down by Legislative Decree 31/01 and subsequent amendments and additions. 

To eliminate the smell of chlorine it is sufficient to run the water or fill a jug and leave it in the fridge for some time, the substance evaporates and the unpleasant taste disappears.
