Miami-Dade WASD Announces Annual Temporary Change in Water Chlorine Treatment from November 5-18, 2018

Posted: Tuesday, October 30, 2018 3:30 pm


The Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (WASD) will temporarily change its method of chlorination at each of its regional water treatment facilities beginning November 5, 2018 and continuing through November 18, 2018. Specifically, free chlorine treatment will be used to provide a somewhat stronger disinfection and bleaching process than the combined chlorine treatment which is normally used at our regional water plants.

During this period, customers may experience unusual chlorine taste or odor in the tap water. However, these temporary conditions will not cause adverse health effects. This periodic change in chlorine treatment has taken place annually and will ensure adequate disinfection levels in the water.

This task is part of WASD's ongoing effort to provide a safe, potable water supply for the citizens of Miami-Dade County.
