City Drinking Water Maintenance Notice

Drinking Water Flush

The City will be performing a maintenance chlorine flush of the City's drinking water distribution system. It starts June 7, 2023 and will end June 27, 2023. 

During this period, the City's drinking water distribution system will use a 'free' chlorine residual in the water instead of the usual chloramines disinfectant. As part of the maintenance flush, you may notice increased system flushing activity. 

Some residents may notice a slight chlorine taste and/or chlorine odor in the water. Fish owners and individuals on kidney dialysis need to take necessary precautions during the chlorine flush of the system. 

According to the EPA, during this time, the water is safe to drink. The levels of chlorine used for drinking water disinfection are unlikely to cause any health effects. If you are concerned about chlorine from tap water, you can boil water for 15 minutes to remove the chlorine or leave it in a jug/pitcher of water at room temperature for at least 24 hours and the chlorine will evaporate without boiling. 

If you have any questions, please call the Public Works Department, Utilities Division between 7a-3p at 407-971-5692. After hours/weekends call 407-971-5675. We thank you for your cooperation and patience during this flushing period.
