PORT RICHEY, Fla.—A boil water notice is in place after a water main break for Port Richey.

The notice is for the residents of the west side of US 19 north of Tacoma Drive, West Port Subdivision, Brown Acres East and Brown Acres West.

City officials said the notice was a precaution. They recommended the water be boiled for a minute before people consume it.

Water will need to pass a bacteriological test before the boil notice is lifted. The city will send out a notification when it is safe to consume the water without boiling.
