The City of Coral Springs Utility Division will temporarily be changing its method of chlorinating its water to comply with the Department of Environmental Protection. As a result, you may notice a chlorine taste or odor in the tap water beginning on or about August 11 through the 25, while free chlorine is being used. The areas that will be affected will be from Royal Palm Boulevard north to the Sawgrass Expressway past Wiles Road, and from Riverside Drive east to State Road 441.
These temporary conditions should not be harmful to your health. However, if you are on kidney dialysis, please consult your physician for any special instructions concerning this matter. If you have tropical fish or aquatic animals, please contact your local pet store for advice.
If you are especially sensitive to the taste and odor of chlorine, try keeping an open container of drinking water in your refrigerator. This will enable the chlorine to dissipate, thus reducing the chlorine taste. Remember, drinking water has a shelf life. Change out the water in your refrigerated container weekly.
We regret any inconvenience you may experience during this time, but this is necessary to maintain our high quality water standards throughout our system. If you have any questions, please call the Coral Springs Utility Division at 954-345-2160 or the Coral Springs Improvement District at 954-752-1797.
