A telecommunications contractor inadvertently broke a 6-inch water line while laying fiber around Fort Walton Beach this afternoon, causing water disruptions in several neighborhoods.

  • The incident occurred at the intersection of Beal Parkway and Crewilla Drive NW, according to Public Works Director Daniel Payne.

The affected areas include neighborhoods on the north and east side of Beal Parkway, spanning from Girard Street NW to Kelly Avenue NE. Some properties in Cinco Bayou also experienced water outages due to the break.

City of Fort Walton Beach utility crews responded promptly to the incident and successfully completed repairs by approximately 5:30 pm.

  • Customers who require a precautionary boil water notice will be directly notified by the City via handout.

Payne stated that potential testing and noticing will be conducted in coordination with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) and the Florida Department of Health (FDOH) to ensure compliance with their guidance.
