ECUA crews are working today to calibrate equipment at two new booster pumps in the utility’s potable water system. Once done, these pumps will be placed online and serve to enhance the delivery of water to customers in these areas. During the exercise, customers in these areas may experience fluctuations in water pressure as well as the possibility of discolored water. Work will be conducted in the following areas: • Perdido Key: from 9:00 am to Noon • Mobile Hwy., between Chimney Pines Drive and Erica Court: from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm If residents experience discolored water, they may flush their home’s plumbing by running the taps for a few minutes to alleviate the issue. If problems persist, customers are asked to contact ECUA Customer Service at 850-476-0480 for assistance. # # #
