Starting June 15 through July 15, the Palm Beach County Water Utilities Department will temporarily change the disinfection process used to treat our drinking water in order to maintain high water quality in the county’s distribution system.
The county will be using a slightly stronger process that produces chlorine residual instead of a chloramine residual. These temporary changes will not cause adverse health effects.
If you use a home dialysis machine, or you are an owner of tropical fish or a manager of stores and restaurants with fish and shellfish holding tanks, you should seek professional advice for removing chlorine residuals from tap water.
For more information, call the Palm Beach County Water Utilities Department at (561) 740-4600, option #3.
