Winter Haven residents under boil water notice

Posted: Updated:
WINTER HAVEN (FOX 13) -

Several hundred Winter Haven homes were without water Thursday, thanks to a water main break.

Service has been restored, but residents have been told to boil their water as a precaution.

The broken water main was along Winter Lake Road near All Saints Academy.

Nearly 1,700 customers were affected, a county spokesperson said.

Residents are now being told to boil their water for one minute before drinking or cooking with it.

The precautionary boil water notice is in effect until water samples come back clear. The testing should take about 48 hours, the county said.
