As an alternative bottled water may be used.

The City of Palm Coast will flush the affected lines and collect two consecutive days of bacteriological samples as soon as all flushing and disinfection are completed.
This is a precautionary measure to ensure that the water meets all safe drinking water standards. The notice will remain in effect until satisfactory results from bacteriological samples are received. At that time, the boil water notice will be rescinded and the affected customers will be notified.
