City of Melbourne Issues Boil Water Alert
BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – A precautionary boil water was issued today at 10 a.m. in the Melbourne areas between Crane Creek and Florida Ave., and between Babcock Street and Lipscomb Street.
According to the City of Melbourne, a water transmission line ruptured in the vicinity of a construction project may have caused low water pressure within the affected area. As a result, as a precaution, they 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,” said Ralph Reigelsperger, Public Works & Utilities Director.
This precautionary boil water notice is expected to remain in effect until Sunday, May 26. 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.
