Please Continue to Conserve Water

Post Date:09/13/2017 9:03 AM

We continue to urge all Melbourne water customers to strictly conserve water use until further notice.

Do not do anything that uses more water than is absolutely essential to your health and hygiene. Do not wash cars, hose down decks, fill pools. Please use as little water as possible for bathing, cooking or cleaning.

Melbourne water customers are in the following communities:
•             Indialantic
•             Indian Harbour Beach
•             Melbourne
•             Melbourne Beach
•             Melbourne Village
•             Palm Shores
•             Satellite Beach
•             West Melbourne
•             Unincorporated Brevard South of Pineda Causeway (Customers who live in unincorporated Brevard County located south of Pineda Causeway and receive a water bill from the City of Melbourne. Suntree and Viera are served by the Cocoa water system – not Melbourne.)

Hurricane Irma has considerably degraded the water quality in our main source of water, Lake Washington. It is taking a great deal more water in the production process to treat and deliver safe water for our customers.

Until conditions change, we will not be able to keep up with current demand.

The water is currently safe, but if current demand is not reduced, we will have to issue a system-wide Precautionary Boil Water Notice.
