Notice to Lake City Drinking Water Customers

The City of Lake City

The city of Lake City Water Facilities Department are temporarily converting its disinfectant process from chloramines (a combination of chlorine and ammonia) to free chlorine residual through January 22, 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 the appropriate pretreatment of water before adding new water to tanks.

Again, this is a routine precautionary measure to ensure all of their customers have clean, safe potable water. Please feel free to contact their office during regular business hours at 386-466-3350 if you should have any questions.
