A precautionary boil water advisory will begin at 10 p.m. Thursday, June 11, for part of the Bayshore area.
The following addresses will be impacted: 7755 and 7775 Market Street, 729 to 778 Scorpion Drive, all of Cosgrove Court, all of Halo Court, 401 to 418 High Green Drive, and 175 Amaryllis Drive.
The advisory will affect an apartment community with approximately 250 residents, as well as 20 homes. CFPUA staff has hand-delivered notification to impacted customers.
The advisory will remain in place while a contractor offsets a CFPUA water main for a road-widening project in the area.
Periods of low or no pressure in the water distribution system increase the potential for back siphonage and introduction of bacteria into the water system.
When under a boil water advisory, customers are asked to boil their water for one minute, then allow it to cool prior to consumption. They also may use another water source such as bottled water.
Consumption includes drinking, brushing teeth, making ice, food preparation, fruit and vegetable washing, pet consumption, and the preparation of baby formula. Customers do NOT need to boil water prior to using it for showering or bathing.
Before a boil water advisory is lifted, CFPUA lab staff test the water to ensure it is safe to drink.
