A break in an 8-inch water main caused the St Johns County Utility Department to issue a precautionary boil water advisory for St Augustine Shores, according to an announcement received by Historic City News.
All water used for cooking, drinking, making ice, brushing teeth or washing dishes should be boiled under the notice. It is recommended to bring the water to a rolling boil for one minute or to use bottled water instead.
The boil water notice will stay in effect until lab tests show the water is safe to drink and the county issues a retraction, which is a minimum of two days. It is anticipated the boil water notice will be retracted Friday, August 17th around 10 a.m.
At least 200 residences are impacted by the break.
The area affected includes residences on the following streets:
•Christina Drive (East of Shores Blvd.)
•East Bianca Circle
•Gilda Drive (East of Shores Blvd.)
•San Bruno Street
•San Remo Road
•300-485 Shores Boulevard
