Notice to Lake City drinking water customers

·1 min read

Lake City has notified residents that the water facilities department will be temporarily converting its disinfectant process.


This is a routine measure that is common for water utilities switching from using chloramines as its primary disinfectant (a combination of chlorine and ammonia). Water utilities using chloramines must periodically change to using chlorine alone, known as free chlorine, to maintain optimal levels of disinfection.

Customers may notice a temporary change in the taste, odor and/or color of the water, which is not harmful.

The City of Lake City Water Facilities Department said that anyone who uses a kidney dialysis machine at home should contact their equipment suppliers so the proper filtering equipment may be installed.

Tropical fish or aquatic animal owners should contact a local pet store or aquarium store for appropriate pretreatment of water before adding water to tanks.
