Melbourne Water Supply Conditions Return to Normal


MELBOURNE, Florida - The City of Melbourne’s water production has returned to normal capacity following Hurricane Irma. Therefore, the Melbourne Water Department is no longer urging customers to strictly conserve water.


Melbourne water customers are in the following communities:
Indialantic
Indian Harbour Beach
Melbourne
Melbourne Beach
Melbourne Village
Palm Shores
Satellite Beach
West Melbourne

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 City of Cocoa water system – not Melbourne.)

Hurricane Irma had considerably degraded the water quality in Melbourne's main source of water, Lake Washington. 

For several days after the hurricane, it took a great deal more water and time in the production process to treat and deliver safe water to south Brevard County customers.
