FPUA lifts boil-water advisory after water mainline broke Wednesday

·1 min read

Fort Pierce Utilities Authority customers no longer are under a boil-water advisory, the utility said late Friday afternoon. The 24-inch water line broke Tuesday night.

The pipe broke at 13th Street and Georgia Avenue late Tuesday, forcing FPUA to isolate the entire water system for repairs, according to a news release. All FPUA customers were under a precautionary boil-water advisory for more than two days.
