The Boil Water Notice was issued for Regency Towers, Busters Beer, and Bait, and residents at 5801 Thomas Dr, 5900 Thomas Drive, and 4021-4029 Beach Drive.

According to the news release, water service is expected to be restored by 6:00 p.m.
If you are at these locations, you may experience discolored water for approximately 24 hours after your water service has been restored.
As a precaution, they advise that all water used for drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing teeth, or washing dishes be boiled.
They said a boil of one minute is sufficient. As an alternative, bottled water may be used.
This “Precautionary Boil Water Notice” will remain in effect until the water main repair is completed and a bacteriological survey shows that the water is safe to drink.
The City will issue a rescission lifting this “Precautionary Boil Water Notice” at that time and you will be notified by a handout notice at your address.
