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. 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.

Alteration to Water Chlorination Process

 

PUBLIC NOTIFICATION FOR CITY OF LAKE WORTH TO ALTER WATER CHLORINATION PROCESS SEPTEMBER 22, 2018 THROUGH OCTOBER 10, 2018

Esto contiene información importante sobre el agua potable de la Ciudad de Lake Worth. Trate, o hable con alguien que entienda bien o una copia traducida puede ser proporcionada si se comunica con el Servicio al Cliente de la Ciudad de Lake Worth o al (561) 586-1710

To maintain high water quality in the City of Lake Worth water distribution system, the City of Lake Worth Water Treatment Plant will temporarily change the water chlorination methods for two weeks from September 22, 2018 through October 10, 2018. The City of Lake Worth will also increase hydrant flushing during this time. This is a preventive maintenance process.

Starting September 22, 2018 a "free chlorine residual" water treatment method will be used to provide a stronger, faster acting disinfection process than the "combined chlorine or Chloramines" treatment which is normally used. The City of Lake Worth will revert back to the "combined chlorine" method by October 10, 2018. As part of this process, the City of Lake Worth will be flushing fire hydrants. This flushing will cause temporary water in the swales of the roadways. Please do not be alarmed by this water as it will dissipate within a few hours.

The City of Lake Worth and their Consecutive Systems water utility customers including Hypoluxo Village, John Prince Park, Lantana Cascade and Palm Breezes Club may notice a slight chlorine taste or odor in their tap water during this period; however, these temporary conditions should not cause adverse health effects. Those who are especially sensitive to the taste or odor of chlorine can keep an open container of drinking water in their refrigerators for a few hours to allow the chlorine to dissipate. Users of home dialysis machines, owners of tropical fish, and managers of stores and restaurants with fish and shellfish holding tanks are advised to seek professional advice as the method of removing chlorine residuals differs from removing chloramine residuals from tap water. Any questions should be directed to the City of Lake Worth Water Treatment Plant (561) 586-1710.

Please note, if you have an aquarium or pond always test the water you add to your aquatic environment to be sure it is free of any chlorine, chlorinated water may be toxic to your aquatic environment. Chemical additives with directions are available at pet/fish supply stores for removing either free chlorine or chloramines from water for use in fish tanks or ponds.
