Drinking Water Free Chlorination
Tuesday, September 20, 2022
The City of Fort Lauderdale will temporarily switch to using free chlorine in its drinking water system beginning at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, September 20, 2022, through 9 a.m. on Tuesday, October 11, 2022.
Free chlorination is a common preventative maintenance procedure for water systems using chloramines for disinfection. The City expects the chlorination period to be transparent to our neighbors; however, some may notice a slight change in the taste or smell of their tap water. In addition, neighbors may see fire hydrants running in their neighborhoods, which is part of the normal maintenance process.
Please contact the Emergency Management/Utilities Department at 954-390-2190 with any questions.
