Announcement from City: Notice to Alter Water Chlorination Process

In accordance with a program recommended by the Palm Beach County Health Department, the City's water chlorination methods will be temporarily changed for two weeks from April 13, 2008 through April 27, 2008. The City will accomplish this strictly precautionary measure to ensure our water supply remains free of bacteria.

Starting April 13, a "free chlorine" water treatment method will be used to provide a somewhat stronger disinfection process than the "combined chlorine" treatment which is normally used. The City will revert back to the "combined chlorine" method on April 27, 2008.

City of Lake Worth and their Consecutive Systems water utility customers including John Prince Park, Seminole Manor and Aqua Utilities of Florida may notice a slight chlorine taste or odor in the tap water during this period; however, these temporary conditions will not cause any adverse health effects. Tropical fish tank owners, hospitals and residents with pools should be aware of the chlorination changes and make adjustments accordingly. Any questions should be directed to the City of Lake Worth Water Treatment Plant (561) 586-1710.
