That has been much reported in the news recently.  Many cities are increasing 
levels of chlorine/chloramine in their water as a precaution against any 
possible biological attacks on municipal water supplies.  My local water 
supplier has announced they are now adding double the previous amount of 
chlorine.  I, too, cannot smell it, but since I have no way to test for 
residual chlorine levels, I do add extra chlorine remover at water changes as 
a precaution.  Chlorine remover is cheap and, within reason, you can't 
overdose with the stuff.
