Melbourne Water Supply Conditions Return to Normal
Melbourne water customers are in the following communities:
• Indian Harbour Beach
• Melbourne Beach
• Melbourne Village
• Palm Shores
• Satellite Beach
• West Melbourne
• Unincorporated Brevard South of Pineda Causeway (Customers who live in unincorporated Brevard County located south of Pineda Causeway and receive a water bill from the City of Melbourne. Suntree and Viera are served by the Cocoa water system – not Melbourne.)
Hurricane Irma had considerably degraded the water quality in our main source of water, Lake Washington. For several days after the hurricane, it took a great deal more water and time in the production process to treat and deliver safe water for our customers. Therefore, the City of Melbourne requested that all of its customers strictly conserve in order to help ensure our more limited supply would keep up with demand.
We thank all of our customers who followed conservation measures during this difficult time and appreciate the community’s cooperation and patience.
