FPUA’s potable water system maintained its integrity and is safe for all customers. FPUA did received notification that Martin County Utilities has issued a boil water notice for the residents of South Hutchinson Island. This affects Martin County Utilities customers ONLY. FPUA water customers are NOT affected.
FPUA’s Water Reclamation Facility on South Hutchinson Island lost power from approximately 11:00 PM, September 10th, until 1:00 PM September 11th causing the deep water injection well to be inoperable. This necessitated a release of treated effluent into the Indian River. This poses no threat to the human population or wildlife.
