UPDATE: Boil water advisory rescinded for Independence Mall

CFPUA has rescinded a precautionary boil water advisory for Independence Mall at 3500 Oleander Drive. 

Drinking water service in the area has been returned to normal. The advisory was originally issued Tuesday evening due to a water main break.

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.
