Below are two excerpts from a notice in this week’s Herald. To subscribe to the newspaper use this link or pick the newspaper up at the City’s newsstand located at the corner of Lake Ave. and ‘L’ Street in the Downtown (it’s still just ¢50!):

     To maintain high water quality in the City of Lake Worth water distribution system, the City of Lake Worth Water Treatment Plant will temporarily change the water chlorination methods for two weeks from November 30, 2016 through December 18, 2016. The City of Lake Worth will also increase hydrant flushing during this time. This is a preventive maintenance process.
     Starting November 30, 2016 a “free chlorine residual” water treatment method will be used to provide a somewhat stronger disinfection process than the “combined chlorine or Chloramines” treatment which is normally used.

     The City of Lake Worth and their Consecutive Systems water utility customers including Lake Osborne Estates, Hypoluxo Village, John Prince Park, Lantana Cascade and Palm Breezes Club may notice a slight chlorine taste or odor in their tap water during this period; however, these temporary conditions will not cause adverse health effects.
