[ARCHIVED] City of Sanford Issues Boil Water Advisory

City Seal

The water consumers of the City of Sanford in Lee County have experienced periods of low pressure and service interruption in the distribution system due to a main line break.  

Periods of low or no pressure in the distribution system can increase the potential for back siphonage and the introduction of bacteria into the water system.

Therefore, the City of Sanford advises that when water is restored, consumers boil all water used for human consumption (including drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes and food preparation) or use bottled water.

Vigorous boiling for one (1) minute should kill any disease-causing organisms that may be present in the water.    

This office is strongly urging the water consumers to conserve water whenever possible.  

Once repairs are made to the line break, water plant personnel will perform sufficient testing of the water to ensure it is safe for human consumption.  

This advisory remains in effect until further written notification is issued.
