Water Chlorination to Take Place July 15 through July 29

Published on June 07, 2021

Coral Springs, FL – Beginning on July 15 and running through July 29, the City of Coral Springs Utilities & Engineering Division, Royal Waterworks, Coral Springs Improvement District, and the North Springs Improvement District will temporarily change its method of chlorinating water to comply with recommendations from the Department of Environmental Protection. As a result, within the two-week period, you may notice a chlorine taste or odor in your tap water. Water main flushing will also take place during this period between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. As a result of fire hydrant flushing, a temporary discoloration of the water and a reduction in pressure may occur.

The flushing program serves two important functions. First, it minimizes the build-up of mineral and other sediments, which over time affect water quality and water flow. Secondly, it allows water departments to verify fire hydrants are in proper working order for vital fire protection. 

These temporary conditions should not be harmful to your health. However, customers are cautioned to determine if the water is clear before washing clothes. Customers are also advised to set aside water for drinking and cooking purposes, and check water clarity before use. If you experience discolored water, run the cold water in all your faucets for approximately 5-10 minutes. If conditions persist, please contact your water provider at the number listed below. Additionally, if you are on kidney dialysis, please consult your physician for any special instructions concerning this matter. If you have tropical fish or aquatic animals, please contact your local pet store for advice. Customers with inline filters may want to contact their equipment manufacturer for guidance on use during chlorination.

If you are especially sensitive to the taste and odor of chlorine, keep an open container of tap water in your refrigerator. This will enable the chlorine to dissipate, reducing its taste. Remember, drinking water from the tap does have a shelf life, always change out the container weekly.

We regret any inconvenience you may experience during this time, but this is necessary to maintain our high-quality water standards. If you are unsure of your water service provider, click here.
