This temporary treatment of the water system is a common practice for water suppliers that use chlorine and ammonia (chloramines) water disinfection treatment method. This periodic program is mandated by the Florida Department of Health to ensure adequate disinfection residuals.
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.
Kidney dialysis centers, nephrologists and hospitals have been notified in order for them to make any adjustments necessary in the various processes which they operate. Any questions regarding kidney dialysis should be directed to the user's doctor or dialysis specialist.
Some aquatic and marine animal species are sensitive to free chlorine; persons maintaining aquariums with any sensitive species may wish to contact their pet supply stores regarding dechlorination.
Information about drinking water and health is available on the Environmental Protection Agency’s website
, and through the Safe Drinking Water Hotline: 1-800-426-4791. For details regarding the City of Sunrise's treatment system, please contact the Utilities Department at (954) 888-6000
