Fort Lauderdale to chlorinate water for three weeks

The City of Fort Lauderdale will temporarily return to using free chlorine in its drinking water system. This preventive maintenance procedure will begin at 11 p.m. Saturday, June 5, 2010 and will end at 11 p.m. Saturday, June 26, 2010.

Free chlorination is a common practice for water systems using combined chlorine disinfection. The chlorination period is anticipated to be transparent to our customers; however, some may notice a slight change in the taste or smell of their tap water.

This procedure will affect the City of Fort Lauderdale, as well as Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Oakland Park, Port Everglades Authority, Village of Sea Ranch Lakes, Wilton Manors and sections of Davie and Tamarac.

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

Customers with questions who receive a water bill from the City of Fort Lauderdale should contact the 24-Hour Customer Service Center at or request information online at

Customers with questions who receive a water bill from other municipalities or entities should call their respective water provider’s customer service phone number.
