Groveland water plant repair to cause low water pressure

Groveland residents will experience low water pressure for eight to 10 weeks while the treatment plant on State Road 565A is shut down because of a major chlorine gas leak, city officials said.

“It is advised to minimize water usage and avoid car washing, irrigating or any other non-essential use,” the statement said, adding that reclaimed water is unaffected.

The electrical cords and electronic controls were also damaged and need to be repaired or replaced.

The malfunction at the plant initially began on July 17 and the city issued a water boil advisory for residents generally south of Cherry Lake and Lake Lucy that lasted a couple of days.
