TO: The Melbourne Water Customers on the beachside from Pineda Causeway south to East Eau Gallie Boulevard:
City of Melbourne Water Distribution crews worked on repairing a fire hydrant that was hit by a vehicle. The effect of the incident compromised the main which caused an eruption at approximately 3 p.m. The repair work caused the water line to become dislodged at a major water main. Repairs are under way but break has caused very low to no water pressure in most of Melbourne’s beachside water distribution system. This affects customers on the beachside from the Pineda Causeway to East Eau Gallie Boulevard
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.
This precautionary boil water notice is expected to remain in effect until Friday, April 18. It will be lifted when the required bacteriological survey shows that the water is safe to drink. You will be provided with a notification at that time.
If you have any questions, you may contact City of Melbourne Public Works & Utilities Administration office at (321) 608-5000, or the after-hours emergency number of (321) 255-4622.
