ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- The St. Johns County Utility Department has issued a precautionary boil water advisory for The Shores area of St. Augustine.

The advisory is due to a break in an 8-inch water main. At least 200 residences are impacted by the break.

All water used for cooking, drinking, making ice, brushing teeth or washing dishes should be boiled under the notice. It is recommended to bring the water to a rolling boil for one minute or to use bottled water instead.

The boil water notice will stay in effect until lab tests show the water is safe to drink and the county issues a retraction, which is a minimum of two days. It is anticipated the boil water notice will be retracted Friday, August 17th around 10 a.m.
