Notice to Lake City Drinking Water Customers
The city of Lake City Water Facilities Department will be temporarily converting its disinfectant process from chloramines (a combination of chlorine and ammonia) to free chlorine residual beginning June 29, 2018 and ending on July 30, 2018.
This is a routine measure that is common for water utilities using chloramines as its primary disinfectant. Water utilities using chloramines must periodically change to using chlorine alone, known as free chlorine, to maintain optimal levels of disinfection within the water distribution system.
Customers may notice a temporary change in the taste, odor and/or color of the water, which is not harmful.
Anyone who uses a kidney dialysis machine at home should contact their equipment supplier so the proper filtering equipment may be installed.
Tropical fish or aquatic animal owners should contact a local tropical fish store for appropriate pretreatment of water before adding water to tanks.
Again, this is a routine precautionary measure to ensure our customers of clean, safe potable water.
Please feel free to contact our office during regular business hours at (386) 466-3350 if you should have any questions.
