Precautionary boil water notice issued for six Marion County communities

Marion County Utilities has issued a precautionary boil water notice for homes and businesses within the Bluefields, Delcrest, Fort King Forest, Hi Cliff, Regency Estates, and Sleepy Hollow communities due to a temporary loss of pressure.

Customers in these communities are advised to boil water intended for consumption for at least one minute until further notice. As an alternative, bottled water may be used for drinking, cooking, brushing teeth, making ice, or washing dishes.

Any water that is used for laundry, bathing, and showering does not need to be boiled.

Customers can expect notification from Marion County Utilities after the water has been proven safe to drink per the Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s guidelines.

Marion County Utilities is notifying customers via emails, interactive community calls, media release, and social media, and customers can expect the same type of notifications once the boil water notice has been lifted.

For more information, or to update the contact information on an account, call the Marion County Utilities customer service line at 352-307-6000.
