 APRIL 27, 2021 


DAVIE, Fla. – The City of Sunrise Utilities Department has extended the scheduled free chlorine disinfection until Monday, May 3, 2021. Please note that the water treatment 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 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
