The City of Ormond Beach Utilities Division will be modifying the disinfectant used for the City’s drinking water systems, beginning July 4 through July 25, 2022.

According to a release, disinfection of the water distribution system with the application of free chlorine (a stronger disinfectant) rather than chloramines (a longer-lasting disinfectant comprised of combined chlorine-ammonia). This temporary disinfectant conversion, with a coordinated flushing exercise, is a common practice for enhancing the effectiveness and reliability of disinfection in water distribution systems and is recommended by the Department of Environmental Protection.

The normal use of the chloramine disinfectant will resume upon completion of the conversion period.

During the disinfection, customers may experience a difference in the taste or odor of the water. Customers on dialysis using proportioning machines to prepare dialysate should contact their physician to obtain the appropriate steps to accommodate this change in water disinfectant use. Customers with fish tanks or aquatic species should contact a professional aquarist to minimize any adverse effects on these items associated with chlorine.

For more information, call the City of Ormond Beach Public Works Department at (386) 676-3220.
