Nassau County Emergency Management announced a boil water advisory for all Nassau-Amelia Utilities customers.
“Up until you people stopped in, we had no idea,” said Carl Meaux.
He and his wife Llona are a little upset they weren’t notified that their water could be contaminated.
“No one called us or informed us,” he said.
But some families did see a tweet by Nassau County Emergency Management alerting all Nassau-Amelia Utilities customers they are under a boil water advisory.
An official with Nassau County said the advisory is expected to be in effect for three days as a precaution after a generator lost pressure during water testing.
The official told Action News Jax the advisory is a precaution due to fear of bacteria intrusion from the loss of pressure.
The precautionary boil water advisory impacts 3,000 customers.
Officials expect the next water test to take place Saturday.
