 City of Fort Lauderdale to Chlorinate Water System

Water Treatment Scheduled for October 8 – 29, 2019

October 2, 2019 - The City of Fort Lauderdale will temporarily switch to using free chlorine in its drinking water system. This preventive maintenance procedure will begin at 9 am on Tuesday, October 8, 2019 and will end at 9 am on Tuesday, October 29, 2019.

Free chlorination is a common practice for water systems using chloramines for disinfection. The chlorination period is anticipated to be transparent to our customers. However, some may notice a slight change in the taste or smell of their tap water. In addition, some customers may see water running from fire hydrants in their neighborhoods which is part of the normal maintenance process.

This procedure will affect City of Fort Lauderdale, as well as Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Oakland Park, Port Everglades Authority, Village of Sea Ranch Lakes, Wilton Manors and sections of Davie and Tamarac (east of State Road 7/441). This also affects those in Lauderhill whose water service is provided by the City of Fort Lauderdale. (See map)
