Neptune Beach issues a boil water advisory after a water main break Tuesday morning
The City of Neptune Beach announced Tuesday, Jan. 23, that while a water main break that affected more than a dozen homes on Oak Street has been repaired, a boil water advisory has been issued for the area.
Homes located in the areas of 570, 600, 601, 616, 617, 632, 633, 700, 701, 716, 717 and 806 Oak Street are affected by the warning. Red door hangers have been placed on the front doors of affected homes to notify residents, the city said.
Residents are advised to boil water there for up to three days. A bacteria test will then be performed to ensure that the water is safe for consumption.
The city called on residents to do the following:
“Please boil any water for one minute before drinking or consuming. Bottled water is a good alternative for those who have recently had surgery, are immunocompromised, or have a chronic illness. You can use tap water for washing as long as you avoid drinking it.
The city also said homes at 803 and 730 on the corner of Oak Street and Lincoln Road were not affected by the water main break and were not subject to a boil water advisory.
