Once a Storm Has Been Named

  • Do not cut down trees or do major yard work.
  • Do not begin construction projects that produce debris.
  • Once a watch or warning has been issued, do not trim vegetation of any kind.
  • Mass cutting places a tremendous burden on the collection and disposal processes and there is not enough equipment or manpower to handle the additional material before the storm makes landfall. You could put not only yourself at risk but your neighbors as well
  • Do not take materials to the curb, transfer stations or landfill during a watch or warning period. Services may be suspended and facilities closed early to prepare for the storm.

Please follow these tips after a storm is named. | Questions?  Call 561.586.1720 or 561.533.7344

Phase 1 Upgrade of Natural Gas Lines

Florida Public Utilities has embarked upon upgrading & installing new pipes throughout the City.  The replacement project will abandon the old steel mains & service lines & replace them with new polyethylene piping which is corrosion resistant & has a longer service life, thus minimizing breaks, gas leaks, and improving service to Lake Worth customers.   Please be cautious during construction & understand there may be temporary limited access on roads & in the alleyways.  Phase 1 Maps | Gas Reliability Infrastructure Program

Phone Scam Targeting LW Utility  Customers

Phone scammers posing as City of Lake Worth employees are targeting customers across our service territory. These scammers may use false phone numbers that could appear on a caller ID to be City of Lake Worth. They then threaten to shut the power off unless a payment is made immediately with a Green Dot MoneyPak card or personal credit card. These calls are not from us. We will never call and demand credit card information or take Green Dot MoneyPak cards as payment with the threat of disconnection. In fact, we do not ask for any personal information from you unless you initiate the contact.

If you ever receive a strange call and are in doubt, hang up and call us at 561-533-7300. Authorities have been notified of this scam. It seems to be affecting utilities across the nation. If you think you may have been a victim, please contact us at 561-533-7300 or make a Suspicious Incident Report with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s office at 561-688-3400.  Once you have a case number, contact us and we will forward to the Detective in charge.
