The Florida Governmental Utility Authority (FGUA) has restored service following repairs by the well driller.  Service was restored at approximately 10:07 p.m. this evening.  Following restoration of service, the Precautionary Boil Water Notice Advisory is now in effect.  Customers are encouraged to follow United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and bring water used for cooking or drinking to a rolling boil for one minute.  This will neutralize any possible active viruses or bacteria that may have entered the water system during repairs.  Alternatively, bottled water may be used.

Water samples will be taken to a Florida Department of Health-certified laboratory, and the Advisory will be rescinded once water samples indicate that the water is safe to drink, most likely by Tuesday, March 11.  The FGUA apologizes for any inconvenience this unplanned outage and advisory may cause.  Customers with questions regarding their regular service may contact Customer Service during regular business hours (Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.).

The Florida Governmental Utility Authority (FGUA) is issuing a Precautionary Boil Water Notice Advisory for the FGUA Morning View System where crews are responding to repair a “no water” calls located within the Morning View Subdivision in Leesburg. Water services was interrupted at approximately 3:00 p.m. Upon arrival to the site the problem has been found with the well; a Well driller has been contacted to further investigate Well operations and make repairs.

Once water service is restored, a Precautionary Boil water Notice Advisory will be in effect for all Morning View System customers,  since it is possible for harmful bacteria to enter a water distribution system due to either a loss of water pressure or installation of new water treatment plant components. Once we can confirm through biological testing (typically 2-3 days) that no bacteria are present in your water system, we will notify you by door-hanger that this Precautionary Boil Water Notice is no longer in effect.

As a precaution, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advises that all water used for drinking and cooking be boiled and indicate a rolling boil for a period of one minute, which is sufficient to render water free of bacteria, viruses, and protozoa. Bottled water may be used as an alternative. The FGUA sincerely apologizes for the inconvenience you experience during the Precautionary Boil Water Notice period and greatly appreciates your patience as we perform maintenance work on your water system. Please call the FGUA at (877) 657-8889 with any questions or visit the FGUA website at www.FGUA.com for additional information.
