The Florida Governmental Utility Authority (FGUA) is issuing a Precautionary Boil Water Notice Advisory for the FGUA Village Water System where crews are responding to repair a 2″ (two inch) watermain break at 2520 Ruthven Dr. in Lakeland. Water services was interrupted at 5:00 p.m. Repairs are currently underway.

The following addresses will be affected by the outage: All of Village Water

We are issuing a Precautionary Boil Water Notice for all 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 are able to 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are present in your water system, we will notify you by door-hanger that this Precautionary Boil Water Notice is no longer in effect.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.
