FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

THE CITY OF SUNRISE UTILITIES DEPARTMENT FREE CHLORINE DISINFECTION RESCHEDULED FOR MARCH 29 TO APRIL 26, 2021

DAVIE, Fla. – Due to declining chlorine levels, the City of Sunrise Utilities Department has moved up the previously scheduled April free chlorine disinfection to begin Monday, March 29, 2021. The water treatment system will last until April 26, 2021. Please note that this notice only impacts residents who receive a utility bill from the City of Sunrise.

This is a routine procedure that provides additional protection against bacteria and is a common practice for systems using combined chlorine.

This temporary treatment of the water system is often used by water suppliers that use a chlorine (chloramine) water treatment method. Its utilization is recommended by the Florida Department of Health.

The procedure does not cause any adverse health effects and is safe for consumption. 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 in 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 dichlorination.

For more information about drinking water, please visit the Environmental Protection Agency’s website or the Safe Drinking Water Hotline: 1-800-426-4791. 

For details regarding the City of Sunrise’s treatment system, please call 954-888-6000 or visit www.sunrisefl.gov/waterquality.
