LANTANA, Fla. — The town of Lantana early Thursday morning issued a precautionary boil water notice for all of its customers.
According to a written statement at 12:30 a.m., Lantana's Utilities Department experienced a system-wide failure of the water system pressure.
Service has been restored, however health department regulations require a bacteriological survey to be performed before the boil water notice can be rescinded.
According to the town's website, the utility provides water service to about 3,300 customers.
At around 7:30 a.m., public works crews were busy visiting restaurants and other businesses to notify people about the advisory.
Water customers in Lantana should do the following:
* If you have an icemaker, turn it off and do not turn it back on until the boil water notice is no longer in effect.
* Flush your internal water lines. For example, open your faucets and let the water run until air is expelled and the water runs clear.
* Boil the water to a roiling boil for one minute for cooking and drinking
* Contine to boil the water until the boil water notice has ended
Water customers in Lantana can contact Asst. Utilities Director Jerry L. Darr at (561) 540-5758 or the Water Treatment Plant at (561) 540-5760.
