In order to maintain high water quality in the county’s water distribution system, the Palm Beach County Water Utilities Department (PBCWUD) will temporarily modify the disinfection process used to treat drinking water from Monday, November 27 through Saturday, December 23.Stronger disinfectantPBCWUD will use a stronger disinfectant process to produce chlorine residual instead of a chloramine residual during the preventive maintenance process. Customers served by PBCWUD may notice a slight chlorine taste or odor in their tap water during this period. These temporary conditions will not cause any 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.Seek professional adviceUsers 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.Anyone needing more information on this change in the water treatment process may call the Palm Beach County Water Utilities Department at (561) 740-4600, option #1.To find the most up-to-date information concerning the Palm Beach County Water Utilities Department water distribution and wastewater collection systems, follow the department on Facebook and Twitter @PBCWUD.For more on Palm Beach County initiatives, click the link: PBC launches challenge to end homeless youth

Stoke City v Leicester CityPopular Prediction: DrawA “new hope” zeal at Leicester City with their new manager Claude Puel is hard not to be noticed after a positive display at Kings James Park, on match day ten (10) against a struggling and depleting side Everton.Claude Puel’s ended his career as Southampton manager with a defeat at home by Stoke City which he will facing but with his new team, Leicester City in a bid to avenge that with respect to maintaining a positive start at with the Foxes. Leicester City. Stoke City will be coming to this match in high spirits after an away victory at Watford and will be willing to achieve back-to-back league wins for the first time this season.Last meeting between both team at bet365 stadium, December 17,2017 ended (2-2)Kick-off Saturday 12.30pmVenue Bet365 StadiumReferee Bobby Madley Huddersfield v West BromPopular Prediction : Huddersfield win or drawHuddersfield’s poor performance away from home might be questioning.But the have only lost to Tottenham at home (0-4) this season and could brag of anhistoric 2-1 victory over Manchester United in West Yorkshire.They are coming to this game favourite against a team that has not won a single game of any sort since the end of August.However West Bromwich Albion showed they still have a huge amount of spirit, after narrow loss to Manchester City. West Brom can be unpredictable and could finally end their nine-match winless run while Huddersfield have scored just three in their past nine, failing to score in seven.Kick-off Saturday 3pmVenue John Smith’s StadiumLast season n/a (Non Appearance)Referee Roger East Newcastle v BournemouthPopular Prediction : Newcastle to win or drawNewcastle United after an insipid 1-0 defeat on Monday night will hope to bounce back positively when they welcome Bournemouth.They enjoy lot of possession and positive play under Rafa Benitez with an inconsistent end product.Meanwhile their team could do with beating Bournemouth if they really want to compete and avoid been relegated back from the division.The bad news for Bournemouth is that Premier League Saturday matches at home suitEddie Howe has rarely seen his side overrun in games with five of their seven top-flight defeats coming by a solitary goal and the Dorset outfit have shown in the past they can emerge from a dip in form and string a run of results together.Rafael Benítez, he has won his last 31 such fixtures, the most recent five during his Newcastle tenure.

Brighton are more comfortable in the Premier League with a run that has gleaned eight points from their past five matches, promise to be awkward opponents.Kick-off Saturday 3pmVenue Liberty StadiumLast season n/aReferee Mike Dean Everton v WatfordPopular Prediction : Watford win or drawEverton have lost their last five, are winless in seven, shipped five goals when last playing at Goodison Park and are not much bigger than even-money to beat Watford on Sunday.I do get it – I’m in the increasingly small camp believing they’ll climb away from the bottom of the table, once proper guidance is in place and someone chimes in with a goal or two. But I also get why fans of the club would be more sceptical, and not for a second would I consider backing them here.Related West Ham v LiverpoolPopular Prediction : drawWest Ham are known for their rampant inconsistency and unpredictable habit.They were awful against Brighton in a 3-0 home loss, while they were outstanding in their thrilling Carabao Cup fightback against Tottenham and dissapointed their after they throw away a 2-0 Premier League advantage last time at Crystal Palace.They were held to a 2-2 draw after a positive start to the game and it will be interesting to see what new ways the home side come up with here in terms of seeing more points disappear down the drain.Good for them, Liverpool can be just as flaky and conceded easily this season, a problem which Jorgen Klopp has refused to work on.They laboured away for 45 minutes against Huddersfield at Anfield before making the breakthrough and it was very much the case once again in midweek against Maribor as they staged a second-half rally to win 3-0.Sadio Mane could return to action at the London Stadium on Saturday after a spell out due to a hamstring injury picked up during last month’s international breakNeither side has shown positive thought towards defending, which could mean lots if goal expected.Kick-off Saturday 6:30p.mVenue London StadiumReferee Swarbrick Manchester City v Arsenal.Popular Prediction : Manchester City to win or drawThe Manchester Club popular referred to as ‘the Noisy neighbor’ are effectively making all the expected noise on pitch as they have won every meaningful game since a bizarre 1-1 draw with Everton in August.City are, arguably the best team in the Premier League. They parade its best player, Kevin De Bruyne, Jesus, Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling scoring for fun, Leroy SaneArsenal hope lies in their being Arsenal. When they won this fixture 2-0 in January 2015, it was City’s first defeat in 14 games; last season’s FA Cup semi-final victory came on the heels of their own cowardly displays against the likes of Crystal Palace and West Ham. This year, they’ve been thumped 4-0 on Merseyside, but they’ve won 5-2 as well. The disparity between the Gunners at their best and at their worst is massive. Man City posses free scoring forwarders and are coming from an away win to Napoli at UCL, while Arsenal were held to a goalless draw by Red Star Belgrade st the Europa Cup.Kick-off Sunday 3:15pmVenue Etihad StadiumLast season Man city 2-1 ArsenalReferee Lee Probert Southampton v BurnleyPopular Prediction : Burnley to win or drawFacts remains that Burnley are such a big price for victory on the south coast.Southampton are unbeaten in three games now but this is looking like a long-term process as familiar issues continue to hamper the home side.Their converting ratio in front of goals remains a huge issue and once more against Brighton, they never really take advantage despite taking an early lead.Burnley have lost just once on their travels this season and will go level on points with Chelsea and Arsenal if they win at St Mary’s. Mauricio Pellegrino’s side have lacked consistency.Kick-off Saturday 3pmVenue St Mary’s StadiumLast season Southampton 3 Burnley 1Referee Lee Probert Super SundayTottenham v Crystal PalacePopular Prediction : Tottenham to win or drawShow me a SpurIt’s obvious following the dizzying high of Wednesday night’s stunning 3-1 victory over the European and World champions at Wembley. Facts has it a out Tottenham and glory nights, it’s therefore worth noting that the 3-1 victory over Inter was followed by a 4-2 defeat at Bolton and the 1-0 win over AC Milan in the San Siro by a 3-1 loss at Blackpool.With Crystal Palace, and Wilfried Zaha in particular, showing signs of life recently, the potential form of their life.Palace’s away form in all competitions this season reads LLLLLL, with one goal scored and 16 conceded I’d another great factor to consider. The big concern for Palace is how to defend against the free scoring Tottenham strikers. They’ve shipped nine in Manchester already this season, and another four in Bristol.Kick-off Sunday 1p.mVenue Wembly StadiumReferee Friend Kevin Chelsea v Manchester UnitedPopular Prediction : drawThe London Club have managed just one clean sheet in eight games, conceding six across two meetings with Roma and even allowing Crystal Palace to get off the mark for the season three weeks ago. Antonio Conte is under genuine pressure and he probably deserves to be.United is expected to be less adventurous and approach the game routinely, they very much do have something to lose and that’s reflected in their performances in games like these. There’s just no way they will come to Mourinho’s former stomping ground and attempt to make a statement.United kept a clean sheet against Spurs and drew 0-0 with Liverpool, their biggest games so far, and they’ve kept three clean sheets from five away from home. Their preparations for this game will revolve around keeping a fourth and for all that they’re going to struggle to mount a serious title challenge this season, they are reliable when it comes to achieving the set target. Chelsea lead the red-card count of all 20 Premier League sides this season, and the price looks a shade generous.Kick-off Sunday 5:30mVenue Stamford Bridge Stadium
