Precautionary Boil Water Notices are issued as a part of the standard protocol following any loss of water pressure, whether as a result of planned maintenance activities or unscheduled repairs.  Residents located in the specified PBWN area are advised to boil water for one minute at a rolling boil or to use 8 drops of regular unscented household bleach per gallon of water, for water to be used for drinking or cooking purposes.  Two independent bacteriological samples have been initiated and the advisory will be lifted as soon as possible. This process routinely takes 48 hours.

ECUA crews completed the repairs to the main and have flushed out the lines.  Residents are advised that there is a possibility of discolored water as a result of the utility work, and to flush their home’s plumbing by running their taps for a few minutes.  If problems persist, customers are asked to contact ECUA Customer Service at 850-476-0480 for assistance.  Precautionary boil water notice guidelines are available on the ECUA website at http://www.ecua.fl.gov/water-quality/boil-water-notices-and-why-we-issue-them

Through an abundance of caution, ECUA is issuing the following public notice: 

A Sanitary Sewer Overflow -SSO- occurred on September 28 at 8420 Doris Avenue due to an excess of stormwater entering the sanitary sewer collection system. The overflow was estimated at 150 gallons.  An additional 8,020 gallons were diverted at the site,  preventing a larger spill.  The overflow was contained on site and bacteriological sampling was not required.  

ECUA crews ensured that the overflow area was cleaned and disinfected with a biocide agent that abated any contamination concerns, per State protocol.  In accordance with standard operating procedure, the ECUA notified the State Warning Point, the Escambia County Health Department and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
