Precautionary Boil Water Notice (PBWN)

You may have heard about or noticed a significant increase in the number of precautionary boil water notices (PBWN) issued by Destin Water Users, Inc. and other local water utilities in the recent past. Does this mean that the quality and safety or our water has declined? Does this mean that DWU’s water mains are breaking more so than in the past? Absolutely not! Rather, changes in regulatory rules are now requiring that water utilities in Florida issue precautionary boil water notices whenever water service to an area has been turned off, if even for a short while. Why is the issuance of a PBWN required? When breaks or changes occur in water lines, the normal pressure in the line may be reduced or lost and the possibility exists for contaminants to enter that line. The odds of this happening are extremely remote, but to be extra cautious precautionary boil water notices are placed in effect while routine bacteriological sampling is conducted. Usually, two separate sets of samples are taken, each needing 24 hours to be considered complete. When both sets of samples come back “clean”, the precautionary boil water notice is lifted (or “rescinded”). These advisories only affect water that is intended for consumption or cooking.

For more information on PBWN click HERE

If you provide water to visitors or employees, use commercially produced bottled water for drinking or beverage preparation (coffee) during the PBWN. You should also take steps such as posting notices at, or disabling water fountains and ice machines. Foodservice operations have several additional requirements and should contact the Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulation at (850)487-1395 for specific instructions.

Hurricanes 

DWU has emergency plans in place for hurricane response and will do everything possible to make necessary repairs in an efficient and timely manner. Should you experience either a loss of water service or a noticeable loss in water pressure during or after a hurricane, we recommend you take additional steps to disinfect any water intended for consumption or cooking until the water system is restored.

Fraud Alert

In many locations persons impersonating utility company employees knock on doors and state that they work for your utility company and are there to test the water inside your house. These persons once inside your house will go through the motions of testing water and will engage you in conversation while their accomplices steal your personal belongings. DWU customers are urged to contact DWU administrative offices if anyone tries to enter your house on the pretense they are utility company employees. It should also be noted that the elderly are the first choice of these scammers and thieves since it is the elderly that are most concerned about their health; but anyone can fall victim.
