Boynton Beach to Flush WATER Lines with Chlorine

 

BOYNTON BEACH, FL --- The City of Boynton Beach  will temporarily modify the disinfection process utilized to treat its drinking water from July 15 through August 16. Customers may notice a slight chlorine taste, or odor, in their tap water. These temporary conditions will not cause adverse health effects. Those sensitive to the taste, or odor, of chlorine, can place 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. This is a preventative maintenance process in order to maintain the City’s high standard of clean water distribution. For more information, please call 561-742-6964.

On Saturday, May 18, 2013, from 7:00 AM to 9:00 AM (approximate) the Women for Women 5k/10k race will be taking place in the City of Lake Worth. The race will start at the Lake Worth Beach and proceed through the streets of Lake Worth. To facilitate the race course the Lake Worth (Robert Harris) Bridge will be closed to vehicular traffic.

 

Road closures will begin at 6:00 AM.  The bridge will remain in the down position during the race. If there is a priory medical call on the Island of Palm Beach or Town of Lantana during this time Palm Beach County Fire Rescue will be allowed east and west bound access over the bridge. Palm Beach County Rescue will contact PBSO dispatch of any priority medical calls so the deputies working the event are aware and would be ready to open up the road for them. All other traffic will have to access the Southern Blvd Bridge to the north for access and exit off the Island. As in the past we will open up the bridge as soon as possible to minimize the closure time.      

 

Parking and traffic flow will be temporarily prohibited from 6:00 am to 9:00 am (approximate) on the following streets: 

 

•         Lake Ave from South Federal Hwy (east side) to South Ocean Blvd

•         Lucerne Ave from North Federal Hwy (east side) to South Ocean Blvd

•         North O/Ocean Breeze St. from 7th Ave North to 5th Ave South

•         Palmway from 6th Ave North to 18th Ave. South

•         South Lakeside Drive from 5th Ave South to 18th Ave. South

•         2nd Ave North from North Federal Hwy (east side) to North Golfview Rd

•         North Lakeside Drive from 3rd Ave North to Lucerne Ave

•         South Golfview Rd from 1st Ave South to Lucerne Ave

•         Lake Worth Bridge will be closed-Southern Blvd Bridge will be north access

The City will not be responsible for damage to vehicles while parked overnight.
