IMPORTANT NOTICE: END OF TEMPORARY CHANGE IN DISINFECTION METHOD BEGINS 3/16/15
TO:  All Melbourne Water Customers:

Beginning March 16, the City of Melbourne's water treatment method will be switched from free chlorine back to chloramines (formed from the combination of free chlorine and ammonia), ending the temporary change in water treatment that began on March 2. The return to typical system operation is expected to be completed by March 20.

This temporary change in water treatment is a periodic maintenance procedure that provides additional protection against microorganism contamination and helps ensure the water you receive remains safe. Although some Melbourne water customers had noticed a chlorine odor in their tap water, the water remained and continues to stay safe for drinking and other uses during the temporary change.

Special Cautions for Kidney Dialysis Patients & Fish Owners: During this last week of the three-week change in treatment event, people who use kidney dialysis machines should be aware that their water may contain chlorine, ammonia, and/or a mixture of the two. Other specialized users of water, such as fish owners, stores and restaurants with fish aquariums and holding tanks for fish and shellfish, along with hospitals, blood/dialysis clinics, or users of home dialysis equipment may need to take action to maintain appropriate water quality during this temporary switch in disinfection. These users are encouraged to contact an appropriate professional for guidance on how to use the equipment during this period.

For all other users, there are no precautions that you need to take.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: TEMPORARY CHANGE IN DISINFECTION METHOD - Mar. 2 - 20, 2015
TO:  All Melbourne Water Customers:

Beginning March 2 and continuing through March 20, Melbourne water customers may notice a chlorine odor in their tap water. During this period, the City will be temporarily changing its water disinfection method. This temporary change is designed to provide additional protection against microorganism contamination and will help ensure the water you receive remains safe.

This temporary change in water chemistry will not affect the safety of water for drinking.

Special Cautions for Kidney Dialysis Patients & Fish Owners: During the first and last week of this three-week period, people who use kidney dialysis machines should be aware that their water may contain chlorine, ammonia, and/or a mixture of the two. During the middle week, the water should contain free chlorine only. Other specialized users of water, such as fish owners, stores and restaurants with fish aquariums and holding tanks for fish and shellfish, along with hospitals, blood/ dialysis clinics, or users of home dialysis equipment may need to take action to maintain appropriate water quality during this temporary switch in disinfection. These users are encouraged to contact an appropriate professional for guidance on how to use the equipment during this period.

For all other users, there are no precautions that you need to take. However, if you are sensitive to the taste or smell of chlorine, you can collect water in a container and place it in your refrigerator for a few hours. This will allow much of the chlorine to leave the water.
