ECUA issues boil water notices for parts of Bellview, N. Davis Highway

·2 min read

The Emerald Coast Utilities Authority has issued a precautionary boil water notice for multiple streets in the Bellview area.

The affected areas include:

  • Redondo Drive (Address Range: 7004 - 7128)

  • Palmdale Avenue (Address Range: 3222 - 3175)

  • Santa Barbara Street (Address Range: 7011 - 7151)

  • 3126 Patricia Drive

This notice is being issued after repairs were made to a broken 4-inch water main. Precautionary boil water notices are issued as a part of the standard protocol following any loss of water pressure, whether as a result of planned maintenance activities or unscheduled repairs.

A separate notice has also been issued for customers located in the following area:

  • Bloodsworth Lane from Davis Highway to Chapel Street

  • Davis Highway (Address Range: 7220 to 7000)

Residents located in the specified PBWN area are advised to boil water for one minute at a rolling boil or to use eight drops of regular unscented household bleach per gallon of water, for water to be used for drinking or 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 This process routinely takes 48 hours and the notice will be rescinded at that time.

ECUA crews have completed the repairs and flushed out the lines. Residents within the PBWN area and nearby are advised that there is a possibility of discolored water as a result of the utility work, 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.

Precautionary boil water notice guidelines are available on the ECUA website at ecua.fl.gov/live-green/our-water-supply.
