[ARCHIVED] Annual Water Line Flushing Program Going On Now. Water Remains Safe To Drink

Water Line Flushing

The City of Hollywood, Department of Public Utilities has begun its annual water line flushing program. This program will continue through Saturday, July 22, 2017. The annual water line flushing program is used to help rid the water distribution lines of any naturally occurring accumulated sediment.

The water line flushing program will take place Monday through Friday, during the day and evening hours. During the water line flushing period, the Water Treatment Plant will temporarily change its method of disinfection from chloramines to free chlorine. Residents and businesses might be affected during these times. The program will be conducted in one section of the City at a time, starting at Park Road heading west through the City to University Drive and then from Park Road east through the City to the beach.

Although the City’s water might become cloudy or contain a slight chlorinated taste and/or odor, the water is safe for consumption. To remove the chlorinated taste or odor, simply store the tap water in an open container (pitcher) in the refrigerator.

Important information for users of kidney dialysis machines and owners/managers of businesses with fish and shellfish hold tanks. These customers are advised to adjust their method of removing chloramines, routine methods of testing and removing chloramines may not be effective during this program.

For more information, please contact Carlos Aguilera, Public Utilities Manager, Water Treatment Plant at 954.967.4230.
