Port Orange to conduct Annual Treatment of Water System
Maintenance of the system will ensure water quality

 PORT ORANGE, FL - The Port Orange Utilities Department will perform its annual flushing of the water distribution system beginning Monday, August 24, 2015.  The treatment is done to improve water quality and is referred to as the "annual flushing and treating of the Water Distribution System." 
 
The scheduled completion date of the treatment and flushing is no later than Monday, October 6, 2015.  During this six-week period, the city will change its disinfectant residual to free chlorine.  As always, the water will be of the highest standards and safe to drink.  However, some customers may notice a slight difference in the taste of the water.  We appreciate your understanding during this operation as we strive to improve your water quality.  
 
Besides the Port Orange Distribution System, this treatment will cover Harbor Oaks, Allandale, Ponce Inlet, Wilbur by the Sea, and Daytona Beach Shores north to Thames Avenue.
