UPDATE: Boynton Beach Utilities says it has canceled a system-wide precautionary boil water notice, but not everyone is in the clear.

A new precautionary boil water notice is in effect for:

· The area bounded by Woolbright Road, Old Boynton Road, Lawrence Road and Military Trail

· East of Federal Highway between MLK Boulevard and NE 6th Avenue

· Seacrest Boulevard, east to Railroad tracks from SE 21st Avenue to SE 23rd Avenue

The utilities department says it is working to clear the remaining areas as soon as possible.

EARLIER STORY:

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. -- Boynton Beach Utilities issued a precautionary boil water notice Tuesday after a water treatment plant experienced an electrical issue that caused low water pressure for a short time.

The water distribution system did not completely lose pressure.

The notice will remain in effect until the utility ensures the water has been fully tested and is safe.

All water used for drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing teeth or dish washing should be boiled.

A rolling boil for a minimum of one minute is sufficient.
