Water System Mandatory Maintenance

Water System Mandatory Maintenance 

On Monday, December 19, 2011 at approximately 8:00 AM, the Highland Beach Water 

Treatment system will undergo a scheduled maintenance to replace piping in our 

sulfuric acid system to eliminate any possible leaks.  Such maintenance will require the 

opening of the Drinking Water Interconnect with the City of Delray Beach.  While this 

will only be temporary, the water provided from Delray Beach will have added 

ammonia with chlorine for disinfection purposes.    

While water will remain drinkable, anyone using home kidney dialysis machines or 

treating water for tropical fish should change treatment accordingly to neutralize the 

high content of ammonia.  We encourage customers who may be affected by this change 

to seek professional advice.    

We anticipate the maintenance will be completed no later than 4:00 PM Tuesday, 

December 20th.  However it will take up to two days to for the water from Delray Beach 

to filter out of our distribution system.  We will continue to keep you updated as 

information becomes available and when we have returned to using the Town’s water 


We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but this is being completed to keep 

our drinking water system clean, safe and operating at maximum efficiency.  We strive 

to give you the highest quality drinking water possible. 

Should you have any questions, comments or concerns on this change in the water 

treatment process, please contact the Water Plant at 561-243-2084.
