Melbourne customers told to conserve water or else boil-water notice may come.
The Melbourne Water Department has issued an urgent call to its customers to conserve water — or else it may have to resort to issuing a boil-water notice.
The city said the water currently is safe.
But if current demand is not reduced, it will have to issue a systemwide precautionary boil water notice.
• Do not wash cars, hose down decks or fill pools.
• Use as little water as possible for bathing, cooking or cleaning.
The Cocoa water system has a boil-water advisory in place.
Areas covered by the Cocoa water system including Cape Canaveral, Cocoa, Cocoa Beach, Merritt Island, Port St. John, Rockledge, Suntree and Viera, as well as Kennedy Space Center, Patrick Air Force Base and Port Canaveral.
