Beginning on July 14th and
running through July 28th, the City of Coral Springs Utilities & Engineering
Division, Royal Waterworks, Coral Springs Improvement District, and the North
Springs Improvement District will temporarily be changing its method of
chlorinating its water to comply with recommendations from the Department of
Environmental Protection. As a result,
within this two-week period, you may notice a chlorine taste or odor in the tap
water. Water main flushing will also take place
during this period between the
hours of 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. A temporary
discoloration of the water and a reduction in pressure as a result of Fire
Hydrant flushing may also occur.
temporary conditions should not be harmful to your health. However, customers are cautioned to determine if the water is clear before
washing clothes (or any other processing) as staining may occur. Customers
are also advised to set aside water for drinking and cooking purposes, and
after flushing in your area to check the 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 the equipment
manufacturer for any precautions that may be required.
If you are especially
sensitive to the taste and odor of chlorine, try keeping an open container of
drinking water in your refrigerator. This will enable the chlorine to
dissipate, thus reducing the chlorine taste. Remember, drinking water has a
shelf life. Change out the water in your refrigerated container weekly.
flushing program serves two important functions. First, it minimizes the
build-up of mineral and other sediments, that over time can affect water
quality and water flows through the pipes. Secondly, it allows the Water
Department to verify the fire hydrants are working properly and available for
regret any inconvenience you may experience during this time, but this is
necessary to maintain our high quality water standards throughout our system.
