BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA, FLORIDA – The City of Cocoa provided a progress report Tuesday night of restoring water pressure to Cocoa Beach.
“Water pressure still holding, but as we approach the State Road 520 causeway along A1A, the pressure drops to zero,” said City of Cocoa Public Relations Specialist Samantha Senger.
“We suspect a water line break on State Road 520 and it is most likely under the river, which would explain why we haven’t found the big break.
“Tomorrow morning (Wednesday) we will isolate the State Road 520 causeway, just west of Cocoa Beach relief bridge. We should see pressure increase and stabilize at Patrick Air Force Base. We will also be opening the State Road 520 valve in Cocoa and begin feeding water to central and south Merritt Island.
“System pressures are stable and we expect them to remain stable until tomorrow when we begin working in the field again. Our goal tomorrow is to get the rest of the system water pressure. We will also be conducting system wide sampling/testing to begin the process of overcoming the boil water notice.”
