BOYNTON BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Water for City of Boynton Beach residents may taste a bit off starting Wednesday, as the City is preparing to flush water lines with chlorine. We stress this is the City of Boynton Beach water system. If your address is “Boynton Beach” but you really live in unincorporated Palm Beach County, your water will not taste any differently.

From the City of Boynton Beach Monday afternoon:


The City of Boynton Beach will temporarily modify the disinfection process utilized to treat its drinking water from Wednesday, August 17 through Tuesday, September 6, 2022. Customers may notice a slight chlorine taste, or odor, in their tap water.

These temporary conditions will not cause adverse health effects. Those sensitive to the taste, or odor, of chlorine, can place an open container of drinking water in the 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 advice as the method for removing chlorine residuals differs from removing chloramine residuals from tap water.

This is a preventative maintenance process in order to maintain the City’s high standard of clean water distribution. Please call 561-742-6964 for further information
