Chlorination of water in Weston starts Sunday
From Feb. 1-21, the Sunrise Utility Department, which provides water to Weston, will use "free" chlorine in the drinking water treatment system to provide additional protection against bacteria.
Free chlorination is a process that cleanses the water purification system and protects against the potential of bacteria getting into the system.
This temporary treatment of the water system is a common practice for water suppliers that use a chlorine (chloramine) water treatment method. This periodic program is mandated by the Broward County Health Department.
The procedure does not cause any adverse health effects. However, some individuals may notice a slight change in the taste, odor or color of the water during this time.POSTED IN: None
