PRECAUTIONARY BOIL WATER NOTICE - CAPE CANAVERAL
WATER MAIN BREAK AT 116 HARDING AVENUE, CAPE CANAVERAL
Please be advised that due to a water main break at 116 Harding Avenue in Cape Canaveral, 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: 5840 N. Atlantic Avenue, 116, 124, 131, 132, 140, 150, 152, 154, 156, and 158 Harding Avenue
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.
