Marion County issues precautionary boil water notice for several 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 bring water intended for consumption to a rapid boil for at least one minute. 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 once the water has been proven safe to drink per the Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s guidelines.

According to Marion County Utilities, customers will be notified via emails, interactive community calls, media release, and/or social media once the boil water notice has been lifted.
