PRECAUTIONARY BOIL WATER NOTICE

Please be advised that due to multiple water main breaks throughout the system, the 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. Customers should conserve water until further notice. Expect low pressure through the system.

This notice affects the following areas: Entire Cocoa Utility Water System including Patrick Air Force Base, Kennedy Space Center, Port Canaveral, Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach, Merritt Island, Cocoa, Port St. John, Rockledge and Viera.

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”.
