PUBLIC NOTIFICATION FOR CITY OF LAKE WORTH TO ALTER WATER CHLORINATION PROCESS
NOVEMBER 30, 2016 THROUGH DECEMBER 18, 2016
Este contiene información importante sobre su agua potable. Traducir, o hablar con alguien que entiende bien.
To maintain high water quality in the City of Lake Worth water distribution system, the City of Lake Worth Water Treatment Plant will temporarily change the water chlorination methods for two weeks from November 30, 2016 through December 18, 2016. The City of Lake Worth will also increase hydrant flushing during this time. This is a preventive maintenance process.
Starting November 30, 2016 a “free chlorine residual” water treatment method will be used to provide a somewhat stronger disinfection process than the “combined chlorine or Chloramines” treatment which is normally used. The City of Lake Worth will revert back to the “combined chlorine” method by December 18, 2016. As part of this process, the City of Lake Worth 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.
It will be safe folks but what I do to eliminate the bleach smell from the water is filling a container of tap water and then cover it and put it in the refrigerator. I seldom buy bottled water...Lake Worth water is just too good even in spite of the chlorination.
