In accordance with our efforts to provide safe drinking water to the residents of Indiantown, our last water system maintenance procedure was done betweenDecember 17th 2018 and January 7th 2019.
During that time, the water disinfection method was switched from the use of Chloramines, a disinfectant made from chlorine and ammonia to the use of Free Chlorine.
Free Chlorine is a stronger germ-killer, but sometimes leaves a chlorine taste or smell in tap water. This change is a normal procedure to help ensure that potentially harmful microbes do not develop in our water system. This was a temporary condition and did not last more than a few hours.
The temporary conditions during our yearly maintenance is not be harmful to your health, however, if you are on kidney dialysis, you should consult your physician for special instructions concerning this matter.
For more information or any questions you may have, please contact the Indiantown Company Utilities Department at 772-597-2121 and ask for Jim Hewitt or Ernie Watson.
