An overnight service interruption that happened has caused bacteria to appear in Sanford’s water supply.
A precautionary boil water notice was issued Saturday, the City of Sanford said.
The city said people living south of 25th Street and State Road 46, east of Old Lake Mary Road and east of Beardall Avenue, need to boil their water until further notice.
Consumers are asked to boil water for at least one minute when bathing, brushing one’s teeth or drinking. The city also suggests using bottled water.
The notice will remain in effect until the problem is corrected and data shows that the water is safe to drink, the city said.
For any questions or a status report, residents are asked to call the City of Sanford Information Line at 407- 688- 5155.
