The Charlotte County Utilities Department has declared a precautionary boil water notice for a portion of the Port Charlotte service area due to mechanical issues.

The affected areas will remain under a boil water notice until further notice.

Affected Customers: All addresses between El Jobean Road north to Hillsborough Boulevard and Flamingo Boulevard west to the Myakka River.

The notice was put into effect due to reduced system pressure from the shut off of the water supply.

Charlotte County Utilities is requesting that all residents in the affected area boil water intended for drinking or cooking at a rolling boil for a minimum of one minute until further notice.

The Utilities Department will notify all affected residents with a rescission notice as soon as the water quality is confirmed to be at safe consumption levels.

As an alternative, bottled water could be used.
