City of Ormond Beach Notifying City and Tymber Creek Utilities Customers for Modifications of Potable Water System.

Mon, Mar 09, 2020 at 1:55PM

Written by Kristen Schmutz – Belden Communications.

 

The City of Ormond Beach is sending out notice to both City, and Tymber Creek Utility Customers, that the Utilities Division will be temporarily modifying the disinfectant used in the City’s potable water system.

 

From March 23, 2020, through April 13, 2020, the disinfection of the water distributions system will be performed. A free chlorine, which is a stronger disinfectant than chloramines, which does last longer, will be used.

 

The temporary disinfectant conversion and a coordinated flushing exercise is a common practice for enhancing the disinfection of the water distribution systems and is recommended by the Department of Environmental Protection.

 

Normal use of chloramines will resume after completion of the conversion.

 

During the period of disinfection, City Officials want to ensure that the water will still be safe to drink. Customers may experience a change in taste or odor due to the disinfectant that is to be used.

 

 

The City of Ormond Beach and the Utilities Division warns:

 

“Customers on dialysis using proportioning machines to prepare dialysate are advised to contact their physician to obtain the appropriate steps to accommodate this change in water disinfectant use. Customers having fish tanks or aquatic species are advised to contact a professional aquarist to minimize any adverse effects on these items associated with chlorine.”

 

If there are questions or concerns call the City of Ormond Beach Public Works Department at (386) 676-3220.
