City water pressure in Melbourne is either low or out of service for many areas.

MELBOURNE, Florida – The City of Melbourne had a water main break at the water production facility today that hampered our ability to put water into the system and to produce water.

Water service has been restored, but crews are still working to determine the cause of the break and to repair the break.

Melbourne supplies drinking water for its city population as well as customers in West Melbourne, beachside, and unincorporated areas of Brevard County.

Due to this temporary drop in water pressure, as a PRECAUTION, we advise that all water used for drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing teeth, or washing dishes, be boiled. A rolling boil of one minute is sufficient. As an alternative, bottled water may be used.

This precautionary boil water notice affects the following Melbourne water customers:

  • Indialantic
  • Indian Harbour Beach
  • Melbourne
  • Melbourne Beach
  • Melbourne Village
  • Palm Shores
  • Satellite Beach
  • Unincorporated Brevard South of Pineda Causeway (Customers who live in unincorporated Brevard County located south of Pineda Causeway and receive a water bill from the City of Melbourne. Suntree and Viera are served by the Cocoa water system – not Melbourne.)
    West Melbourne

We’ll have another update when we have more information. Stay tuned.
