Boil Water Notice Lifted After E. Coli Bacteria Warning

January 13, 2018

The Bratt Davisville Water System has lifted precautionary boil water notice that was issued after a well tested positive for E. coli bacteria.

The boil water notice was put into place for customers in extreme northwestern Escambia County late Wednesday night after one raw sample taken at Bratt Davisville Well 2 tested positive for the presence of E. coli bacteria.

A bacteriological survey now shows the water is safe to drink, according to the utility, after “the return  of chlorination to the water system”.

The now-rescinded boil water notice covered the areas below:

Nokomis Rd. from Rockaway Creek Rd. traveling West to North Pineville Rd., Rockaway Creek Rd. from Nokomis Rd. traveling North to Alabama Line, Gibbs Rd., Circle Rd., Shady Oak Dr., Miller Rd., Jakes Rd., Jones Rd., Reynolds Rd., Flowers Rd., Albritton Rd., Barlow Rd., Tullis Rd., North Pineville Rd. from Nokomis Rd. North to Alabama Line, Hollingsworth Rd., and three customers immediately south of Hollingsworth Rd. on North Pineville Rd.
