EWD ends one ‘boil water’ notice, issues another

Englewood Water District is dealing with its second water main break in a week.

Engle­wood Water Dis­trict is deal­ing with its sec­ond water main break in a week.

ENGLEWOOD, Fla. – The Engle­wood Water Dis­trict has rescinded one “boil water notice and issued another.

Due to a water main break, a “boil water” notice for the fol­low­ing streets:

  • STEWART STREET FROM CURTIS BOULEVARD TO OLD ENGLEWOOD ROAD
  • PINEAPPLE STREET FROM STEWART STREET TO SUNCREST LANE
  • ALL OF SUNCREST LANE
  • ALL OF OAK STREET

As a pre­cau­tion, EWD advises all water used for drink­ing or cook­ing be boiled.

A rolling boil of one minute is suf­fi­cient. As an alter­na­tive, bot­tled water may be used.

This notice will remain in effect until repairs are com­pleted and a bac­te­ri­o­log­i­cal sur­vey shows that the water is safe to drink.

Any ques­tions should addressed to the Engle­wood Water District’s water dis­tri­b­u­tion man­ager, Wayne Ker­shan­ick, at 474‑3217.

  • PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE FROM TWELFTH STREET TO OYSTER CREEK DRIVE
  • OYSTER CREEK DRIVE FROM PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE TO KENTUCKY AVENUE
  • KENTUCKY AVENUE FROM OYSTER CREEK DRIVE TO THIRTEENTH STREET

The water main break in that area has been repaired and a bac­te­ri­o­log­i­cal sur­vey shows that the water is safe to drink.

Any­one with ques­tions should con­tact the Engle­wood Water District’s water dis­tri­b­u­tion man­ager, Wayne Ker­shan­ick, at 474‑3217.
