Chlorine flush of water in Black Hammock service area begins June 25th

Chlorine flush of drinking water supplied in the Black Hammock Water Service Area will begin June 25, 2018 and end on July 15, 2018

The City of Oviedo will be performing a maintenance chlorine flush of the City’s Drinking Water Distribution System which will also affect Seminole County customers in the Black Hammock service area. During this period, the Drinking Water Distribution System will use a “free” chlorine residual in the water instead of the usual “chloramines” disinfectant.

Some residents may notice a slight chlorine taste and/or chlorine odor in the water. Fish owners and individuals on kidney dialysis need to take necessary precautions during the chlorine flush of the system.

If you have questions please call Seminole County Environmental Services at 407-665-2767. We thank you for your cooperation during this chlorine flushing period.
