Boil water advisory lifted for San Marco


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A boil water advisory for the San Marco area has been lifted, JEA announced Tuesday night. 

A JEA spokesperson said water quality tests were conducted and the results came back clear, showing that the water is safe to drink. 

A water main break, the second in less than a week, was reported Sunday evening on Landon Avenue at Arcadia. The break flooded the immediate area and left 3,000 homes and businesses under the boil water advisory. 

Water service was restored to all customers in San Marco and the Southbank early Monday morning.

Crews worked Tuesday to replace the broken pipe and will take the next couple of days to continue repairs.

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.
