Water Distribution is currently flow testing city wide fire hydrants.

If you experience the following it is recommended to run your water faucets for three to five minutes. Please allow a few hours for discoloration to completely to dissipate. Should you have any immediate concerns or questions please feel free to contact Water Distribution at 561.586.1719.

Fire Hydrant Flushing

The City of Lake Worth Fire Hydrant Flushing Program is a vital component of the Utility Department’s ongoing commitment to provide its customers with the safest and highest quality water possible.

Four times a year, the City of Lake Worth Water Utility Department performs a city wide fire hydrant flushing program of the system. This involves utility workers opening fire hydrants throughout the city, ensuring the water quality standards are met at every service area. In addition to this scheduled flushing, the City of Lake Worth also performs localized hydrant flushing throughout the rest of the year in order to maintain the required chlorine residuals. This localized maintenance flushing is performed in response to daily water quality sampling results. Learn more.


Automatic Distribution System Flushers

Flushing helps maintain water quality. The water entering our distribution system is of very high quality; however, water quality can decline in distribution mains if the mains are not properly managed.  Flushing helps remove “stale” water.  Learn more.
