South Dixie Highway boil water notice

Public Works
Public Information Coordinator Cathy DuPont alerted Historic City News local St. Augustine news desk via an immediate media release that a precautionary boil water notice is still in effect for the area around South Dixie Highway at Anderson Street.

The notice was ordered following a water main break Wednesday afternoon, caused by stresses created by the rapid rise in temperature that day.

Area residents and business customers who experienced a temporary loss of water service or low water pressure are asked to boil water as a precaution until further notice.

All water used for drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing teeth or washing dishes should be boiled. A rolling boil of one minute is sufficient. As an alternative, bottled water may be used.

Affected areas:

S. Dixie Highway, from Oyster Creek South to Arapaho Ave.,

Isabel St., from Hopkins St. to S. Dixie,

Eastman St., from Madeore St. to Anderson St.,

Newcomb St., from Madeore St. to Anderson St.,
