UPDATE: (Peace River Heights) The Precautionary Boil Water Notice Advisory issued on Wednesday, March 15th, 2023 in the Peace River service area following water treatment plant maintenance has been lifted. All biological testing samples were negative and therefore you may resume water usage as normal. The samples were analyzed by a Florida Department of Health-certified laboratory that confirmed the drinking water is safe to drink.
The FGUA would like to apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced during this time and thank you for your patience during the Precautionary Boil Water Notice period. We appreciate your assistance in notifying your neighbors that the Precautionary Boil Water Advisory is no longer in effect.
For additional information, FGUA customers may contact the FGUA Customer Service Office at (239)543-1005 or visit the FGUA web site at www.fgua.com.
(Peace River Heights) Beginning at 10:00 AM. on Wednesday, March 15th, 2023, the Florida Governmental Utility Authority (FGUA) will deactivate the water treatment plant serving your community to allow for plant maintenance. Every effort will be made to complete work as quickly as possible so your water service can be restored, but please be aware that water service might not be available again until later in the day. The anticipated time of service restoration is 4:00 PM. Notification to all affected customers is being hand delivered by door hanger.
A Precautionary Boil Water Notice will be in effect for all customers following completion of scheduled maintenance. Once we are able to confirm through biological testing (typically 2-3 days) that no bacteria are present in your water system, we will notify customers by door-hanger that this Precautionary Boil Water Notice is no longer in effect.
As a precaution, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advises that all water used for drinking and coking be boiled and indicate that a rolling boil for a period of one minute is sufficient to render water free of bacteria, viruses, and protozoa. Bottled water may be used as an alternative.
The FGUA sincerely apologizes for the inconvenience you experience during this maintenance event and the Precautionary Boil Water Notice period and greatly appreciates your patience. Please call the FGUA’s Customer Service office 239-543-1005 with any questions.
