[ARCHIVED] Annual Free Chlorination Treatment of Distribution System to Begin

Water Faucet with water background with text Annual Free Chlorination Treatment of Distribution Syst

As part of our efforts to ensure that the drinking water we supply is of the highest quality possible, the City of Deerfield Beach Environmental Services Department will begin its annual free chlorination treatment of the water distribution system on September 7, 2023. This is a three-week process that will end on September 29, 2023.

This switch to free chlorination treatment is a common practice for water systems using chloramines as a disinfectant. During the free chlorination, residents may notice a slight change in taste, odor, and color of the tap water. The water will remain safe for drinking, cooking, bathing, and other household use. During this period, our utility crews will also be flushing fire hydrants throughout the City. This may cause temporary water discoloration in the respective area. If this happens, please run the water from your faucets until the water clears.

Residents undergoing dialysis or who have a compromised immune system and are currently undergoing treatment should seek advice from their primary physician to determine if their treatment needs to be adjusted during this free chlorination period. Also, grocery stores, pet stores, bait stores, restaurants, and residents with aquariums and fish or lobster tanks that use city water must adjust the chlorine treatment procedure during the free chlorination period.

For additional information on this change in the water treatment process, please get in touch with the Water Plant at 954‐480‐4370.
