Free Chlorination

Free Chlorination begins on September 22, 2021 and ends on October 13, 2021 in the District 2 Water Service Area.

Free chlorination is a common practice for water systems using combined chlorine disinfection in an effort to ensure the integrity of the distribution system.  This chlorination period is anticipated to be seamless; however, there may be a slight change in the taste or odor of the tap water.


​​​​​​​​​REINSTATEMENT OF TURN-OFFS ON PAST DUE BALANCES

The suspension of turn-offs for Broward County Water and Wastewater Services utility customers that was enacted one year ago in response to COVID-19 ended on May 1, 2021. The County will resume the normal policy for the disconnection of utility services for past due balances unless an alternative payment arrangement has been made. For more information please see below.

IMPORTANT NOTICE CONCERNING TURN-OFFS ON PAST DUE BALANCES

This letter is notification of an important change to your Broward County Water & Wastewater Services account, effective May 1, 2021.
One year ago, this month, Broward County temporarily suspended its policy for water turn-offs for past due balances. It was a way for us to help customers through a difficult economic time and ensure water services were available for handwashing and other hygiene measures during the height of the pandemic. 

During this time, we encouraged customers to stay current with their water utility payments if they were able, and to reach out for assistance in setting up a payment plan if they were not.

Over the past several months, many businesses in our community have reopened. Thankfully, many of those who temporarily lost their jobs are back at work. Since January, thousands of residents have been vaccinated and thousands more will be vaccinated in the coming weeks. The Federal Government has issued three separate economic stimulus packages during the pandemic with payments for adults and children in qualifying households. Included were programs for utility bill assistance.

Given these recovery activities, effective May 1, Broward County Water & Wastewater Services will reinstitute its suspended water turn-off policy. Unless alternative payment arrangements are made, customers with past due balances may be subject to disconnection starting May 3, 2021.
Given that some customers may have experienced financial hardship and reduction in income due to COVID-19, UTILITY BILL ASSISTANCE IS AVAILABLE FOR QUALIFIED HOUSEHOLDS.

You can expect continued patience and understanding from our customer service professionals during these unprecedented times. Please contact us at (954) 831-3250, Monday thru Friday from 8:30AM to 4:45PMP if you need to discuss a payment arrangement with up to six months interest-free. To avoid disconnection under a payment arrangement, you must keep your account in good standing by making payments on both your past due balance, as scheduled, and on your current balance, on time.

We thank you for being our customer and are here to assist you with any questions you may have.
