Cocoa Water Customers Notified of Water Main Breaks; Assistance Requested

COCOA, FL. — There is currently a failure in the Cocoa Utility Water System due to multiple and/or major water main breaks. The City of Cocoa Utilities is working with other agencies to assess and identify the location of breaks and after we do, crews will respond as soon it is safe for them to do so.

The Cocoa Utility Water System includes Patrick Air Force Base, Kennedy Space Center, Port Canaveral, Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach, Merritt Island, Cocoa, Port St. John, Rockledge and Viera.

If customers notice major utility damage with a significant amount of water in their area, please take a picture and forward along with the address or cross streets to the City of Cocoa to help us facilitate identifying the major cause for the system failure.

If leaks are found and fixed today, it would be Wednesday at the earliest before water is available again to Cocoa water utility residents.

Pictures and/or addresses can be e-mailed to ssenger@cocoafl.org, or sent via Facebook or Twitter.
