Okaloosa County Water & Sewer Precautionary Boil Water Notice

OKALOOSA COUNTY  --  Due to emergency repairs associated with the inclement weather, water service has been interrupted and a "Precautionary Boil Water Notice" has been issued for some customers in the Mid County Service Area (PWS ID #1464044), which is for some Okaloosa County Water & Sewer customers in unincorporated Crestview.  The notice has been issued to the following areas:

*all customers on Shoal River Dr. from its intersection with Live Oak Church Rd. to its intersection with Scenic Ct., also including customers on:  Pinnacle Point Dr., Top Flight Dr., Titleist Ln., Dunlop Ln., Ram Ln., Ultra Ln., Wilson Ln., Ping Ln., Macgregor Ln., and Hogan Ln.

* all customers on Antioch Rd., from its intersection with Hwy 90 (including 1992 James Lee Blvd) to its intersection with Arena Rd., also including customers on:  Gladway Dr., GMC Ln., Lacey Ln., Jerry Ln., Golf Course Dr., Country Club Dr., Fairway Dr., Par Ct., Wedgewood Ct., Eagle Dr., Orlimar St., Traxx St., Titanium Dr., and Leyland Ln.

As a precaution, we advise that all water used for drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing teeth, or washing dishes be boiled.  A rolling boil of one minute is sufficient.  As an alternative, bottled water may be used.  Residents are also advised to take precautions when bathing, especially immunocompromised individuals, infants, or the elderly.

The water system is currently collecting samples to determine if the presence of potentially harmful bacteria exists within the water system.  This "Precautionary Boil Water Notice" will remain in effect until the problem has been corrected and a bacteriological survey shows that the water is safe to drink.  The anticipated date for rescinding this notice is May 2, 2014 (by close of business); however, do not assume it will occur on that date.

You will be notified when the "Precautionary Boil Water Notice" has been rescinded.  For further information, please contact Josh Luke, Maintenance Supervisor, 850-978-2055.
