With the start of hurricane season, we would like to remind you of the requirements related to the issuance of precautionary boil water notices (PBWN) in the event of specific emergencies. The goal is to enhance communication and coordination between the impacted water system, your water customers, regulatory food agencies, the Florida Department of Health in each county (i.e., local County Health Department [CHD]), and the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) District Office. Effective communication between entities and consistency in the application for these guidelines is critical for public health protection during emergencies.
