Wellington’s Utility Department has begun a maintenance program to locate and exercise all water main valves. This involves opening, closing and making repairs to ensure they remain operational.
The process stirs up silt or other deposits and can affect the clarity of the water. This is temporary. Field services staff are simultaneously flushing hydrants to minimize discolored water from entering homes.
Customers who obtain drinking water from Wellington’s utility may notice a difference in their tap water.
Residents are advised to flush their home’s sinks and taps inside and outside to help clear the discolored water. Residents who feel they have a persistent problem that is not clearing up, or if they have additional questions, should call Regulatory Compliance Manager Laurie Hand at (561) 791-4149 to address any issues specific to their neighborhood.
