JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

JEA has issued a boil water advisory for customers in the Bartram Park Boulevard area.

A water main break had crews working in the area of Old St. Augustine Road at Bartram Park Boulevard throughout the day Monday. JEA told Channel 4 that a construction crew in the area went through one of JEA's main pipes that services the Bartram area.  The break left customers without water for the majority of the day Monday. 

JEA said it was able to isolate the leak in the water main, repair it and get water flowing to residents late Monday night. The boil-water advisory is in effect for customers who use water for drinking and food preparation.

The boil water advisory affects the customers in the following subdivisions on Bartram Park Boulevard:

Until further notice customers should bring water to a rolling boil for a minimum of one minute prior to using for drinking, food preparation or cooking.

It is recommended that customers flush water lines for three minutes after water returns in order to remove any air and possible sediments from the lines.

For questions JEA customers should call 904-665-6000.
