Officials have issued a boil water advisory for all Fort Pierce Utilities Authority over the next 72 hours after a main water line broke.

St. Lucie County Utility customers in Indian River Estates, North Hutchinson Island, along the Okeechobee/Midway Road corridor and from the Treasure Coast International Airport and Business Park north along U.S. 1 to the county line to 25th Street are under a boil water notice until further notice.

The water outage is impacting roughly 5,000 St. Lucie County Utilities customers.

Once water is restored, those impacted residents will be under a 72-hour precautionary, boil water advisory for any water used for drinking or cooking. A rolling boil of one minute is sufficient. Bottled water may be used as an alternative.

If you have any questions, you’re asked to call St. Lucie County Utilities at 772-462-1150.
