Default PC boil water notice...

Boil water notice issued in Charlotte Co. - ABC-7.com WZVN News for Fort Myers, Cape Coral & Naples, Florida

Anyone have details? All this over a drop in water pressure? Seems fishy....I've drank a few gallons since last night without knowing

Usually when there is a drop in pressure and a boil water notice, that means a water main failure. I noticed our pressure drop last night for a couple of hours, but the Spring Lake area was not in the boil water notice area.

You sure about that? I thought all east of Collingswood Blvd was effected but can't find a map of the affected area. I am just SW of you and thought I was in the area. I'm south of Edgewater between Collingswood and Midway.

Called water Dept last night asked if because of pressure drop (less than 80 psi) asked the person answering the phone if a boil order was in effect and was told NO........

So once again too little too late for ALL of us using water it won't matter now we all ready have ingested the potentially contaminated water.
GOOD COMMUNICATION WATER DEPARTMENT!!!!!!

From ABC 7 NEWS: QUOTE

"CHARLOTTE COUNTY - Officials with Charlotte County Utilities say a boil water notice has been issued for parts of Deep Creek and Port Charlotte after a water outage Thursday night.
Charlotte County Utilities issued the precautionary boil water notice for portions of the service area east of Collingswood Boulevard - including from the Town Center Mall to the Peace River bridges.
There was a failure at the Peace River water treatment plant at approximately 8 p.m. Thursday. Repairs have already been made and the system's water pressure was returned to normal within an hour.
Because the water pressure dropped to below 20 psi, customers are asked to boil their water intended for drinking or cooking at a rolling boil for a minimum of one minute. They should do so until further notice."

GF just got back from Walmart...we usually refill our 5gal water cooler jug there. Not surprisingly the machine is out of order due to the notice (it is just ro/di filtered tap water). Bottles it is I guess. I'll be drinking plenty of beer the next few days, as always...the alcohol should kill any bacteria I already ingested .
