According to a city release, the notice affected residents, customers and businesses within the city of Casselberry that resided on streets north of the Intersection of State Road 436 and Red Bug Lake Road. Residents living south of the area were not impacted.

At 3 a.m. Christmas morning, the malfunction prevented the water treatment system from maintaining the minimum required chlorine residual to kill bacteria and viruses that could cause health risks, officials said.

The repair was made on Thursday at 7 a.m., but the notice remained in effect until a bacteriological survey showed the water was safe to drink.
