IMPORTANT NOTICE TO WATER CUSTOMERSTEMPORARY CONVERSION TO FREE CHLORINE
To maintain high water quality in the City’s water distribution system, the City of Margate Water Treatment Plant is changing its treatment process temporarily to increase the level of chlorine disinfection. Consumers may experience an unusual chlorine taste or odor in the tap water during this period, but these temporary conditions should not cause adverse health effects. However, if you are a kidney dialysis patient, please consult with your physician for any special instructions. This proactive measure prevents bacterial growth in the water mains and keeps the water safe for potable uses. Fire hydrant flushing activities during the event may cause cloudy, discolored water. But this condition would be temporary and should clear within a few hours. We regret any inconvenience you may experience during this period.
THIS CHANGE IN TREATMENT WILL BEGIN JULY 31, 2018 AND CONTINUE THROUGH AUGUST 20, 2018.
Customers with special needs should be aware of potential problems with their equipment and systems during this period. For example, owners of aquariums and holding tanks for fish and shellfish should be aware that this temporary change in our disinfection process may be harmful to aquatic life if not properly addressed. Any such impacts will begin to diminish when the City reverts to the normal disinfection method on/about Monday, August 20, 2018. Users are encouraged to contact an appropriate professional for guidance on operating their equipment/systems/aquariums during this period.If you pay water bills for a condominium or rental property, (residential and commercial), please notify your residents and/or tenants accordingly. To obtain additional flyers free of charge, or if you need more information about this temporary change in the treatment process, please contact the City of Margate, Department of Environmental and Engineering Services (DEES), at (954) 972-0828.RONALD R.
