Boil water notice canceled in Green Cove Springs

Contractor working for city damages water main Wednesday

GREEN COVE SPRINGS, Fla. – A precautionary boil water notice issued for parts of Green Cove Springs after a contractor damaged a city water main has been canceled.

The water main was at the intersection of U.S. 17 and State Road 16, city officials said.

The notice applied to water customers at:

  • Speedway and Cove Plaza at the corner of U.S. 17 and SR 16
  • Elks Lodge, Hickory Grove Baptist Church and Day Care
  • 4630 County Road 209 South Rolling Die

The water had to be shut off while repairs were made to the water main, and after water flow was restored, samples had to come back clear of bacteria before officials could lift the boil water notice.

The notice went into effect at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday and was lifted Friday.

City water is safe to drink, officials said.
