JEA: Boil water advisory lifted in St. Johns after testing comes back clear

JEA announced that testing of water in areas affected by a boil water advisory came back clear. The Boil water advisory has been lifted.

ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. — Update 5:50 a.m. 11/28/2019: JEA official lifted a boil water advisory in North St. Johns County after testing of water samples from affected areas came back clear.

Original Story: JEA has issued a Boil Water Advisory for JEA customers located west of St Johns Parkway, south of Longleaf Pine Parkway and Cunningham Creek, including the following neighborhoods:

  • Parts of Julington Creek Plantation (south of Durbin Creek Blvd, adjacent to Flora Branch Blvd)
  • Parts of Durbin Crossing (south of Lauriston Dr)
  • Johns Creek
  • South Hampton
  • Shearwater
  • Cimarrone
  • Aberdeen
  • Rivertown

The advisory is due to a raw water well at St. Johns North Water Treatment Plant testing positive for E.coli, JEA said.

TRENDING STORIES:

This sample point is prior to the water being treated with chlorine for disinfection, and there are no indications of any issues in the distribution system, JEA said.

As a precaution, additional samples in the distribution system will be analyzed to ensure the water is safe.

The BWA should be lifted by Thursday morning at 6 a.m. if all samples are clear. Once it is clear, a notice will be issued.
