City of Fort Lauderdale to Chlorinate Water System

 Preventive Maintenance Scheduled for June 20 – July 25, 2017

The City of Fort Lauderdale will temporarily return to using free chlorine in its drinking water system. This preventive maintenance procedure will begin at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, June 20, 2017 and will end at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, July 25, 2017.

Free chlorination is a common practice for water systems using combined chlorine disinfection.  The chlorination period is anticipated to be transparent to water customers; however, some may notice a slight change in the taste or smell of their tap water. 

Some customers may also see water running from fire hydrants in their neighborhoods, which is part of the normal maintenance process.

This procedure will affect the City of Fort Lauderdale, as well as Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Port Everglades, Village of Sea Ranch Lakes, Wilton Manors, and sections of the Town of Davie, Oakland Park, and Tamarac (east of State Road 7/441).

The City of Fort Lauderdale maintains the highest standards to ensure clean, high quality drinking water is delivered to its customers.  The City's drinking water meets all federal, state, and local drinking water quality standards.
