Water ChlorinationImportant Information about Your Drinking Water
The City of Sunrise maintains the highest quality standards to provide clean, safe drinking water to our Utilities Department customers, which include residents in the cities of Sunrise, Weston, Southwest Ranches and parts of Davie. Effective April 15 through May 6, the Utilities Department is switching from monochloramine to free chlorine disinfection in its drinking water treatment system to provide additional protection against bacteria. This temporary treatment of the water system is a common practice for water suppliers that use Chloramine water treatment method. This periodic program is recommended by the Florida Department of Health. 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.

Special Considerations: 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 or visit www.sunrisefl.gov/waterquality.
