Chipley issues a warning notice of boiling water

Employee report

The boiling water warning is valid for customers on Holly Avenue from MLK Dr. to Hwy. 77th and 7th streets from Glenwood Avenue to Holly Avenue due to a water supply breach in the area.

The city says it is only a precautionary measure until public works crews are able to “positively reassure customers that the water is safe.”

Chipple City officials say they apologize for the inconvenience and that “every effort is being made to get the water supply back to normal as soon as possible.”

The notice of boiling water advises:

Boil all the water used for drinking, cooking, ice making, brushing your teeth or washing dishes. One minute is enough to boil. Alternatively, you can use bottled water.

The water supply system will take samples immediately after the water supply is repaired to make sure that no contaminants have entered the system during the completion of the work. The warning about boiling water will be valid for two days in a row until two bacteriological tests (one per day) show that the water is fit for consumption.

Customers will be notified by an orange door knocker if this “boiling water warning” is revoked.

For more information, call the public works department at 850-638-6346.
