ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. – JEA has lifted a boil water advisory covering parts of St. Johns County, including three schools, that was issued earlier this week following a water main break.

The advisory was issued Wednesday after a contractor struck a 20-inch pipe on Race Track Road near Durbin Creek Elementary School, according to JEA.

A JEA spokesperson said tests have determined the water is safe to drink, but nonetheless recommended that customers flush water lines for three minutes after service is restored to get rid of any unwanted air and sediments.

The following areas no longer need to boil water they plan to use for drinking and cooking:

  • Creekside High School
  • Durbin Creek Elementary
  • Race Track Road Patriot Oaks Academy
  • Race Track Road from the east end of Durbin Creek Boulevard to St. Johns Parkway
  • The west end of St. Johns Parkway from Race Track Road to County Road 210
  • County Road 210 from St. Johns Parkway to Stone Creek Circle
  • Celestina
  • The Oaks
  • Eastwood
  • Pine Crossing
  • St. Andrews Place
  • Veterans Park
  • Julington Lakes
  • Durbin Crossing
  • Cimarrone
  • South Hampton

The Johns Creek area is still under a boil water notice.
