Melbourne Water Supply Conditions Return to Normal, No Longer Urging Customers To Strictly Conserve Water
By Space Coast Daily // September 18, 2017
BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Melbourne’s water production has returned to normal capacity following Hurricane Irma.
Therefore, Melbourne is no longer urging customers to strictly conserve water.
Melbourne water customers are in the following communities:
• Indian Harbour Beach
• Melbourne Beach
• Melbourne Village
• Palm Shores
• Satellite Beach
• West Melbourne
• Unincorporated Brevard South of Pineda Causeway (Customers who live in unincorporated Brevard County located south of Pineda Causeway and receive a water bill from the City of Melbourne. Suntree and Viera are served by the Cocoa water system – not Melbourne.)
Hurricane Irma had considerably degraded the water quality in Melbourne’s main source of water, Lake Washington.
For several days after the hurricane, it took a great deal more water and time in the production process to treat and deliver safe water for Melbourne’s customers. Therefore, the city requested that all of its customers strictly conserve in order to help ensure our more limited supply would keep up with demand.
City of Melbourne would like to thank all of their customers who followed conservation measures during this difficult time and appreciate the community’s cooperation and patience.
