A precautionary boil water advisory will begin at 6 a.m. Monday, July 27, for all of Independence Mall at 3500 Oleander Drive.
The advisory will remain in place while a contractor ties a new water main into CFPUA’s system to accommodate renovations at the mall. All commercial businesses at the mall will be impacted, and notification will be hand-delivered by CFPUA staff.
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.
