To All Melbourne Water Customers Precautionary Boil Water Notice

Florida Institute of Technology , RSS

This is a precautionary boil water notice for all Melbourne Water customers. Water pressure in the distribution system dropped below the minimum of 20 psi allowed by state regulations. The drop in pressure was caused by a transmission main break at the water production facilities. Due to the drop in water pressure, as a precaution, we advise that all water used for drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing teeth, or washing dishes, be boiled. A rolling boil of one minute is sufficient. As an alternative, bottled water may be used.

This precautionary boil water notice is expected to remain in effect until the required bacteriological survey shows that the water is safe to drink. You will be provided with a notification at that time.

If you have any questions, you may contact City of Melbourne Public Works & Utilities Administration office at (321) 608-5000 or the after-hours emergency number of (321) 255-4622.
