City of Fort Lauderdale to Chlorinate Water System Preventive Maintenance Scheduled for April 6-27, 2021

The City of Fort Lauderdale will temporarily switch to using free chlorine in its drinking water system

beginning at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, April 6 through 9 a.m. on Tuesday, April 27, 2021.

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 water flowing from fire hydrants in their neighborhood, which is part of the normal maintenance process.

Fort Lauderdale maintains the highest standards to ensure that clean, high-quality drinking water is delivered to our neighbors. The City’s water meets federal, state, and local primary drinking water standards.

For more information, please contact the 24-hour Customer Service Center at 954-828-8000 or via LauderServ. You may also download the LauderServ app from the App Store or Google Play.
