Marion County Utilities has issued a precautionary boil water notice for 75 customers in the Edgewater community and 114 customers in the Wineberry community due to a water main line repair.

Residents are being notified via interactive community notification calls, media release and social media. Marion County Utilities advises that all water used for brushing teeth, cooking, drinking, making ice or washing dishes be brought to a rapid boil for at least one minute before use. As an alternative, residents may opt to use bottled water. Water used for laundry, bathing and/or showering does not need to be boiled.

This precautionary boil water notice will remain in effect until a bacteriological survey is performed and shows that the water is safe to drink. Utilities will test the water and notify customers by door tag, interactive community notification calls, media release, and social media when the precautionary boil water notice is lifted. Customers with questions should contact Utilities’ customer service at 352-307-6000.
