BOYNTON BEACH, FL ( (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Water provided by the City of Boynton Beach may taste a bit weird in January, as the City plans to flush the system with chlorine. Officials released this advisory Tuesday morning:

The City of Boynton Beach will temporarily modify the disinfection process utilized to treat its drinking water from Thursday, January 5 through Wednesday, January 25, 2023. 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. During this period, the City’s drinking water distribution system will continue to meet all Federal and State water quality standards. 

For more information, please call the City’s Water Quality Division at 561-742-6964
