Precautionary Boil Water Notice BEACHSIDE Customers Between Wallace Ave. in Indian Harbour Beach & Pineda Causeway

On Feb. 11, 2018, water pressure in the distribution system dropped below the minimum of 20 psi allowed by state regulations due to the water main break at Burns Blvd. in Indian Harbour Beach.

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.

 

Affected Customers

This precautionary boil water notice affects Melbourne water customers who live beachside between Wallace Ave. (just north of Eau Gallie Blvd.) and the Pineda Causeway in the communities of Indian Harbour Beach and Satellite Beach.

If you live on the mainland, this notice does not affect you.


Expected Duration

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

Test results will not be available today, Feb. 12.

Notification

We will alert customers via a Code Red call and will also post an update on the City of Melbourne website and the city's Twitter and Facebook pages as soon as the precautionary boil water notice is lifted.

If you did not receive a call from Code Red when the precautionary boil water notice was issued and would like to receive the follow up call, please sign up for Code Red today on the City’s Website. If you cannot sign up online, please call (321) 608-5080.
