Precautionary Boil Water Notice

From ECUA: A precautionary boil water notice has been issued for ECUA customers residing on the following streets after repairs to a water main, damaged by crews working on a nearby storm water drainage pipe:

Chemstrand Road, from Twin Bay Drive, south to Limerick Lane

Arnett Street

Chadson Street

Boyette Street

Residents are advised to boil water for one minute at a rolling boil, or to use 6 drops of regular unscented household bleach per gallon of water, for water to be used for drinking of cooking purposes.

Two independent bacteriological samples have been initiated and the advisory will be lifted as soon as possible. This process routinely takes 48 hours. Precautionary Boil Water Notices are issued as a part of standard protocol following any loss of water pressure, whether as a result of planned maintenance activities or unscheduled repairs.

ECUA crews have completed repair work and flushed out the lines. Residents are advised that there is a possibility of discolored water as a result of the dislodged hydrant, and to flush their home’s plumbing by running their taps for a few minutes. If problems persist, customers are asked to contact ECUA Customer Service at 850-476-0480 for assistance, or see precautionary boil water notice guidelines on the ECUA website at
