Beginning 9 a.m. Monday, September 7th, 2020, the City of North Lauderdale will temporarily change the disinfection process for the drinking water supply in our community. This is a preventative maintenance procedure which includes free chlorination and hydrant flushing.
The City will temporarily change the disinfection process by returning to disinfecting the water system with free chlorine rather than combined chlorine/ammonia (chloramines). Free chlorination is a common practice for water systems. This periodic maintenance is recommended by the Florida Department of Health. These temporary conditions should not be harmful to your health. However, some individuals may notice a slight change in the taste and/or odor of the water during this time.
Special Conditions:
If you are on kidney dialysis, please consult your physician for any special instructions concerning this matter. If you have tropical fish or aquatic animals, please contact your local pet store for advice. Customers with inline filters may want to contact the equipment manufacturer for any precautions that may be required.
During this process the City also conducts system flushing as part of its prudent utility practice. Flushing will make sure that the free chlorinated water is distributed evenly throughout the water system.
This temporary change in disinfection is expected to end Monday, September 28th, 2020.
For more information, please call Public Works at 954-724-7071.
Monday-Friday, 8:00AM - 5:00PM
