Esto contiene información importante sobre el agua potable de la Ciudad de Lake Worth Beach. Trate, o hable con alguien que entienda bien o una copia traducida puede ser proporcionada si se comunica con el Servicio al Cliente de la Ciudad de Lake Worth Beach o al (561) 586-1710
To maintain high water quality in the City of Lake Worth Beach water distribution system, the City of Lake Worth Beach Water Treatment Plant will temporarily change the water chlorination methods for three weeks from July 07, 2023 through July 28, 2023. The City of Lake Worth Beach will also increase hydrant flushing during this time. This is a preventive maintenance process.
Starting July 07, 2023, a “free chlorine residual” water treatment method will be used to provide a stronger, faster acting disinfection process than the “combined chlorine or Chloramines” treatment, which is normally used. The City of Lake Worth Beach will revert to the “combined chlorine” method by July 28, 2023. As part of this process, the City of Lake Worth Beach will be flushing fire hydrants. This flushing will cause temporary water in the swales of the roadways. Please do not be alarmed by this water, as it will dissipate within a few hours.
The City of Lake Worth Beach and their Consecutive Systems water utility customers including 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 should not cause adverse health effects. Those who are especially sensitive to the taste or odor of chlorine can keep an open container of drinking water in their refrigerators for a few hours to allow the chlorine to dissipate. Users of home dialysis machines, owners of tropical fish, and managers of stores and restaurants with fish and shellfish holding tanks are advised to seek professional advice as the method of removing chlorine residuals differs from removing chloramine residuals from tap water. Any questions should be directed to the City of Lake Worth Beach Water Treatment Plant (561) 586-1710.
Please note, if you have an aquarium or pond always test the water you add to your aquatic environment to be sure it is free of any chlorine, chlorinated water may be toxic to your aquatic environment. Chemical additives with directions are available at pet/fish supply stores for removing either free chlorine or chloramines from water for use in fish tanks or ponds.
