Precautionary Boil Water Notice

Precautionary Boil Water Notice
City of Chipley – PWS# 1670135

Dear Customers: On Brickyard Rd. from Orange Hill Rd. to 8th St. Due to a water main break within your area we are issuing a “Precautionary Boil Water Notice.” This notice will begin on August 21, 2019 at 12:00 p.m.

This is only a precautionary measure being done until we can positively assure our customers that the water is safe. The City of Chipley apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause and will be making every effort to return your water service to normal operation as soon as possible.

AS A PRECAUTION, WE ADVISE THAT ALL WATER USED FOR DRINKING, COOKING, MAKING ICE, BRUSHING TEETH OR WASHING DISHES BE BOILED. A ROLLING BOIL OF ONE MINUTE IS SUFFICIENT. AS AN ALTERNATIVE, BOTTLED WATER MAY BE USED.

THE WATER SYSTEM WILL BE COLLECTING SAMPLES IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE REPAIRS ARE MADE TO MAKE SURE NO CONTAMINANTS ENTERED THE SYSTEM DURING THE TIME THE WORK WAS BEING COMPLETED. THIS PRECAUTIONARY BOIL WATER NOTICE WILL REMAIN IN EFFECT UNTIL THE BACTERIOLOGICAL SURVEY SHOWS THAT THE WATER IS SAFE TO DRINK.

YOU WILL BE NOTIFIED BY AN ORANGE DOORKNOCKER WHEN THIS “PRECAUTIONARY BOIL WATER NOTICE” HAS BEEN LIFTED.

If you have any questions, please call the Public Works Department at 850-638-6346.
