About 9,000 St. Lucie County Utilities customers on North Hutchinson Island face a boil water order.

A water main break has interrupted service.

The utility says it was caused by a contractor error.

Once service is back the boil order will be in place.

Water used for drinking or cooking will need to be boiled.

Experts say a rolling boil of one minute is sufficient.

Customers can also use bottled water.

Anyone with questions can call St. Lucie County Utilities at 772-462-1150.
