Water shut off for all Panama City Beach customers will occur starting 8pm Tuesday to 6am Wednesday.
A Boil Water Notice will follow for the next 48 hours. Please see the notice below from Panama City Beach Administration.
PCB remains under boil water notice/situation update on leak
03/16/2020 4:00 PM
To all Panama City Beach Utility customers:Efforts to install a short bypass from the Bay County water supply on the City's main water transmission line Sunday night were unsuccessful. A leak in the line at West Bay was discovered last week. Because repairs were not successful, the City is having to go to Option C on Tuesday night, March 17. This does extend the boil water notice.
In addition, water will be shut off to ALL PCB utility users from
8 p.m. Tuesday to 6 a.m. Wednesday.
The boil water notice remains in effect for 48 hours after the line is repaired. The City anticipates that will be Thursday night.
We apologize for the inconvenience and are working diligently to get this repaired.
We understand this creates an added worry due to COVID-19 concerns. The City's water is safe for washing hands with soap; the CDC advises washing for 20 seconds, making sure to clean your thumbs, between fingers and your wrists.
As a precaution, we advise that all water used for drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing teeth, or washing of dishes be boiled. A rolling boil of one minute is sufficient. As an alternative, bottled water may be used.
This “Precautionary Boil Water Notice” will remain in effect until the repair is completed and a bacteriological survey shows that the water is safe to drink. The City will publicly issue a rescission lifting this “Precautionary Boil Water Notice” at that time. If you have any questions you may contact the City of Panama City Beach Utilities Department at (850) 233-5100 extension 2420 from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday or after hours and weekends at (850) 233-5050.
