Annual Chlorine Disinfection of the Water System


In conjuntion with the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department, NMB Water will be performing system maintenance involving chlorine disinfection of the water distribution system from November 4 - 17, 2019. During this time, the Norwood Water Treatment Plant will switch from chloramine to free chlorine disinfection, followed by system flushing through fire hydrants. System disinfection and hydrant flushing will provide for continued high quality water for our customers.

Using this different type of disinfection may be noticeable to people and animals with acute chlorine sensitivities. If you are especially sensitive to the taste or odor of chlorine, keep an open container of drinking water in your refrigerator for a few hours to allow the chlorine to dissipate. Users of home dialysis machines, owners of tropical fish, and managers of stores and restaurants with fish and shellfish holding tanks are advised to seek professional advice as to the method for removing chlorine residuals in tap water during this time.

NMB Water staff working in the community will always wear a reflective safety vest, carry identification, and place signs that work is in progress. If you have any questions about this upcoming maintenance, contact Customer Service at (305) NMB-WATER (305-662-9283).
