UPDATE: JEA has lifted the precautionary boil water advisory. 

JEA has issued a precautionary boil water advisory for roughly 1,300 customers in St. Johns County following Hurricane Irma.

On Monday, JEA announced that the boil water advisory affects those where water derives from the Ponce de Leon water plant:

  • 2300 South Ponte Vedra Blvd
  • 4400 Coastal Highway (State Road A1A)
  • Beachside Subdivision
  • Yellow Bill Subdivision
  • Tides Edge Subdivision
  • Turtle Shores Subdivision
  • Ocean Grande/Serenata Beach Condominiums
  • Beachwalk/Kingston Dunes Subdivision
  • South Beach Subdivision

The precautionary advisory is being issued due to low water pressure that occurred during Hurricane Irma.

Customers are advised to boil their water for at least one minute before they drink, use it in food preparation or cooking.

Customers also should flush water lines for three minutes after water returns to remove any air or sediments from the lines.
