OUA Public Notice


Okeechobee Utility Authority will temporarily change its method of chlorinating potable water to insure the future safety of our drinking water.  The water users may notice an unusual chlorine taste or odor in their tap water after October 3rd 2022.  These conditions will last thru October 24th 2022.

These temporary conditions will not be harmful to your health; however, if you are on kidney dialysis, you should consult your physician for special instructions concerning this matter.  If you have tropical fish or aquatic animals, you should contact you local tropical fish store for advice and take appropriate action to insure that you have properly treated the water before adding it to your aquarium.

The hydrant flushing during this period may cause the water to become cloudy and discolored.  This is a temporary condition and should not last more than a few hours.

We sincerely regret any inconvenience you may experience during this time.  Please keep in mind that this is necessary to provide safe water for the customers of Okeechobee Utility Authority.

If additional information is needed, contact Kevin Rogers at 763-3239.  We regret any inconvenience that this may cause you.
