PRECAUTIONARY BOIL WATER NOTICE
Please be advised that due to a scheduled blow off repair at 5360 Palm Ave., Cocoa Beach, FL, the City of Cocoa Utilities Department is notifying you that you need to boil your drinking water. Therefore, as a precaution, we advise that all water used for consumption (i.e. drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, etc.) be boiled. A rolling boil of one minute is sufficient. As an alternative bottled water may be used. The water is safe for bathing, laundering, and other non-consumptive uses.
This notice affects the following areas: 5360 Palm Ave., 5240 Palm Ave Units 100 thru 190, 5201 Winslow Ave., Units 15 thru 28 and 5201 California Ave., Units 1 thru 14.
During natural or man-made disasters the boiling of water may not be possible due to the lack of power within the water system’s service area. If power is not available, residents and businesses are instructed to disinfect their drinking water as follows:
Tap water can be disinfected by adding eight (8) drops of unscented household bleach (4-6% active ingredients) to each gallon of water, then mixing the water and allowing it to stand for a minimum period of 30 minutes. Note: Cloudy water requires 16 drops of bleach and a 30 minute contact time. Also, other approved chemical disinfectants are available at stores that sell camping and hiking supplies.
This “Precautionary Boil Water Notice” will remain in effect for a minimum of 2 days until the problem has been resolved, and a bacteriological survey indicates the water is safe to drink. The bacteriological survey will be performed after the repair has been made, and will be in compliance with Department of Environmental Protection and Department of Health regulations. You will receive a rescission notice once the bacteriological survey is complete.
For up to date information on bacteriological survey results in your area, please visit our website at http://www.cocoafl.org and click on “Alerts”. You can also call our Water Quality Assurance Laboratory at (321) 433-8709 for updated information. We will keep this number updated for bacteriological results that occur over the weekend and on holidays.
For any other questions, please call our Distribution office at (321) 433-8890.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
