TAP WATER CHLORINATION TREATMENT
Monday, April 15 - Monday, May 6, 2019
The City of Sunrise maintains the highest quality standards to provide clean, safe drinking water to its customers, which includes the City of Weston. From April 15th through May 6th, the Sunrise Utility Department, which provides water to the City of Weston, will switch from monochloramine to free chlorine disinfection in its drinking water treatment system to provide additional protection against bacteria.
What is Chlorination Water Treatment?
This temporary treatment of the water system is a common practice for water suppliers that use a chlorine treatment method. This periodic program is recommended by the Florida Department of Health.
This procedure does not cause any adverse health effects. However, some individuals may notice a slight change in the taste, odor or color of the water during this time.
Special Considerations: Kidney dialysis centers, nephrologists and hospitals have been notified in order for them to make any adjustments necessary in the various processes which they operate. Any questions regarding kidney dialysis should be directed to the user’s doctor or dialysis specialist.
Some aquatic and marine animal species are sensitive to free chlorine; persons maintaining aquariums with any sensitive species may wish to contact their pet supply stores regarding dechlorination.
Information about drinking water and health is available on the Environmental Protection Agency’s website, and through the Safe Drinking Water Hotline: 1-800-426-4791. For details regarding the City of Sunrise's treatment system, please contact the Utilities Department at 954-888-6000.
