Palm Beach County Water Utilities Department to Flush Lines with Chlorine Starting January 6

In order to deliver the highest quality water to our customers, Palm Beach County Water Utilities Department (PBCWUD) requires periodic line flushing and temporary treatment modification. These modifications to the disinfection process are routine and an industry best practice as a precautionary measure to maintain the water quality. 

From January 6 through January 26, 2022 PBCWUD will be using free chlorine as opposed to chloramine for water treatment. This is only temporary and the water is safe to drink.

As Atlantis residents are our customers, you may notice your water has a slight variation in taste or smell during this period. If you are especially sensitive to this change, keep an open container of drinking water in your refrigerator for a few hours to allow the chlorine to dissipate.

Users of home dialysis machines, owners of tropical fish, and managers of stores and restaurants with fish and shellfish holding tanks are advised to seek professional guidance as the method for removing chlorine residuals differs from removing chlorine residuals.

Should you need more information on this temporary change is advised to call  
 PBCWUD at (561) 740-4600, option #1.
