Palm Coast - Due to the loss of pressure in portions of the water distribution system, the City of Palm Coast has issued a precautionary boil water notice for Rollins Drive, Palm Coast. A total of 16 houses are affected.

As a result of this loss of pressure, the bacteriological quality of water in this part of the system is questionable. Accordingly, the affected residents have been notified.

We recommend that all water used in the affected areas for consumption and cooking purposes be boiled at a rolling boil for a minimum of one minute until further notice. As an alternative, bottled water may be used.

Work to repair this situation started at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, June 26.

The City of Palm Coast will flush the affected lines and collect two consecutive days of bacteriological samples as soon as all flushing and disinfection is completed.

This is a precautionary measure to ensure that the water meets all safe drinking water standards. The notice will remain in effect until satisfactory results from bacteriological samples are received. At that time, the boil water notice will be rescinded and the affected customers will be notified.

The City of Palm Coast appreciates the patience and cooperation of the public during this important Utility project.
