BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – A water conservation request for Merritt Island and beachside residents that was issued during Hurricane Irma’s trek through Brevard County remains in place until further notice while ongoing repairs and monitoring of force mains the move continue.

Merritt Island and residents who live beachside from Pineda Causeway south are asked to reduce water usage as a result of a major lift station for the area that lost power Sept. 10.

The system was temporarily kept operational with the use of generators until power was fully restored.

However, Brevard County Utility Services reports the main line remains full from storm water, which has caused overflows of manholes and has resulted in sewage backup in some residences.

Since the main force line is full, it’s preventing smaller force main lines from feeding into it, causing concerns of backup.

Residents are asked to reduce water usage, especially flushing toilets, doing laundry and long showers.Limiting water usage will help reduce the chances of backups into residents’ homes and into the streets and river.
