Titusville Water System Maintenance to Begin March 11
TITUSVILLE, FL - (March 4, 2019) – Titusville will begin a chlorine dosing of its water distribution system on Monday, March 11. The dosing is being performed as a maintenance procedure to ensure that Titusville maintains its high quality drinking water standards. The March dosing is the first of two dosing procedures scheduled for 2019. The next dosing is scheduled for October.
The dosing is anticipated to be completed over a four-week period (from March 11 through April 7) and will include the flushing of mains throughout the water system. During the dosing, Titusville water customers may experience a change in both the taste and smell of their water, which is normal. Titusville’s water will remain safe for drinking, cooking, bathing, and other everyday uses during the dosing. The dosing will be performed in compliance with all applicable Florida Department of Environmental Protection regulations; and, water quality will be monitored throughout the process.
Persons currently undergoing dialysis or with a compromised immune system should consult their health care provider prior to the dosing to determine whether the change in disinfection will affect their treatment. In addition, anyone who has a fish tank or pond (including grocery stores and restaurants with lobster tanks and bait shops with fish containers) that uses City water should contact a pet or aquarium professional to determine the need for any adjustments to their aquariums.
During the dosing, Titusville changes its regular drinking water treatment process from using chloramines (a combination of ammonia and chlorine) to using free chlorine. After the chlorine dosing is completed, the City will return to its normal treatment process.
Titusville appreciates the cooperation of its customers during the dosing process. Customers with specific questions or concerns should call the Chlorine Dosing Hotline at (321) 567-3878.
