UPDATE: The boil water notice has been rescinded for the Lake Osborne Waterworks customers, officials said.


A precautionary boil water notice is in effect  for Lake Osborne Waterworks customers. It is due to a water line break on Monday.

Here is the notice being delivered to residents:

Due to a water main break at the corner of Lake Geneva and Crest Drive earlier this morning, your water system will be shut down to complete the line repair.  As a precaution, once water service has returned, a precautionary boil water notice is being issued until a two day bacteriological survey can be performed yielding clear results. We advise that all water used for drinking, cooking, making ice, washing dishes, or brushing teeth be boiled. A rolling boil of one minute is sufficient. As an alternative, BOTTLED WATER MAY BE USED.

This “Precautionary Boil Water Notice” will remain in effect until a bacteriological survey shows that the water is safe to drink, at which point the boil water notice will be rescinded. Testing normally takes two to three days to complete.

If you have any questions, please contact U.S. Water Services at (727) 848-8292.
