DELTONA -- A precautionary boil-water notice is in effect for all homes on Stone Island in Southwest Volusia County.
Utilities crews shut off water at 11:30 a.m. Thursday to make repairs on a six-inch water main break. Residents are advised to bring tap water to a rolling boil for one minute before using it for drinking, cooking or ice-making.
"It is not necessary to boil water for showering or other external uses, Volusia County spokeswoman Pat Kuehn said. "Signs have been placed at the entrance and intersections to notify residents"
The notice is expected to be removed after two consecutive days of satisfactory tests, Kuehn said. However, customers should wait until they receive a rescission notice from Volusia County Water Resources and Utilities before resuming normal usage.
