Wellington Water Distribution System Maintenance Underway
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 is simultaneously flushing hydrants to minimize discolored water from entering homes. Customers that 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. If a resident feels they have a persistent problem that is not clearing up or if they have additional questions, they may call Laurie Hand, Regulatory Compliance Manager, at (561) 791-4149 to address any issues specific to their neighborhood.
We thank you for your patience as we conduct this necessary maintenance and apologize for any inconvenience it may cause.
