BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. -- The city of Boynton Beach will temporarily modify the disinfection process they use to treat drinking water from Saturday, January 11 through Friday, January 31, 2020.

Customers may notice a slight chlorine taste or odor in tap water.

The city says there are no adverse health effects from the temporary conditions.

If you are sensitive to the taste or odor of chlorine, officals recommend placing an open container of drinking water in the 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 the method for removing chlorine residuals differs from removing chloramine residuals from tap water.
