PERMANENT CHANGE OF DISINFECTION TREATMENT PROCESS

 

Dear FGUA Customer:

 

The Florida Governmental Utility Authority (FGUA) will be activating a newly constructed potable water well and free chlorine treatment process at the Linda Lakes water plant starting on Wednesday, May 25.

Please be advised that the disinfection process will be permanently changed from chloramines to free chlorine upon activation of the new well and discontinuation of the interconnect with Pasco County Utilities

This change will not cause adverse health effects, but some customers may notice the temporary presence of cloudy/discolored water as a result of system flushing or a slight change in the taste and smell of the water.  These conditions are harmless.  If cloudy/discolored water is encountered, you may want to run water through the tap until it runs clear.

 

Customers who use tap water for kidney dialysis at home should properly monitor their process for complete neutralization of free chlorine disinfectant residual and should contact their doctor for more information.  To condition tap water for use in an aquarium, de-chlorinating products should be used that neutralize free chlorine.  The water should be tested with a kit that can measure both combined and free chlorine.

 

Please call the FGUA at 877-657-8889 with any questions or for additional information on this permanent change of disinfection method. The FGUA appreciates your patience while we make improvements to your water system.
