ECUA Issues Boil Water Notice For Chemstrand Road Area

March 15, 2023

Due to a broken eight-inch water main, ECUA has issued a precautionary boil water notice for a portion of the Chemstrand Road area.

Specifically, the boil water notice includes:

  • Chemstrand Rd. (Address Range: 8695-9131)
  • Topeka Rd. (Address Range: 207-295)
  • Kaylyn Rd. (Address Range: 211-293)
  • Lost Oak Dr. (Address Range: 8914-8916)
  • Barker St. (Address Range: 205 – 421)
  • Crum Ave. (Address Range: 343 – 347)
  • Sabrina Dr. (Address Range: 101-126)
  • Polo Terrace (Address Range: 120-198)
  • Derby Ln. (Address Range: 8803-8843)

The water main was broken by nearby construction activities, according to ECUA.

Residents located in the specified boil water notice area are advised to boil water for one minute at a rolling boil or to use eight drops of regular unscented household bleach per gallon of water, for water to be used for drinking or cooking purposes. Two independent bacteriological samples have been initiated and the advisory will be lifted as soon as possible. This process routinely takes 48 hours and the notice will be rescinded at that time.

ECUA crews have completed the repairs and flushed out the lines. Residents within the area and nearby are advised that there is a possibility of discolored water as a result of the utility work, and to flush their home’s plumbing by running their taps for a few minutes. If problems persist, customers are asked to contact ECUA Customer Service at (850) 476-0480 for assistance.

Precautionary boil water notices are issued as a part of the standard protocol following any loss of water pressure, whether as a result of planned maintenance activities or unscheduled repairs.
