FINAL-BoilWaterNoticeMapTreeline

AS A PRECAUTIONARY MEASURE, WE ADVISE BOILING OF WATER CONSUMED FOR DRINKING, COOKING, MAKING ICE, BRUSHING TEETH OR WASHING DISHES. A ROLLING BOIL OF ONE MINUTE IS SUFFICIENT.

As an alternative, bottled water may be used.

THE CITY WILL CONTINUE TO TEST THE WATER AND WILL NOTIFY THE COMMUNITY AS SOON AS THE NOTICE IS RESCINDED.

As a best practice, the water is tested for a minimum of 48 hours following the declaration of the precautionary boil water notice. At that point, the results are provided to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, which will then determine whether the precautionary boil water notice may be rescinded, or additional testing is required.
