BOIL WATER NOTICE EXTENDED
Due to a contractor hitting a water main on Midway Road, Fort Pierce Utilities Authority (FPUA) is extending the precautionary boil water notice for all customers in the following boundaries:
North – Midway Rd
South – Saeger Ave
East – Wallace Street
West – Palmetto Ave
These customers should continue to boil all water through 11:30 am, Tuesday, April 3. This notice is issued as a precaution. If you have any questions, contact Fort Pierce Utilities Authority at (772) 466-1600.
FPUA recommends that you follow the Environmental Protection Agency guidelines for boiling water listed below:
1. Use bottled water that has not been exposed to flood waters if it is available.
2. If you don't have bottled water, you should boil water to make it safe. Boil the water for one minute, let it cool, and store it in clean containers with covers.
3. If you can't boil water, you can disinfect it using household bleach. Add 1/8 teaspoon (or 8 drops) of regular, unscented, liquid household bleach for each gallon of water, stir it well and let it stand for 30 minutes before you use it. Store disinfected water in clean containers with covers.
