Boil Water Notice Lifted for City of Hollywood

A boil water notice was lifted for Hollywood residents after crews repaired a ruptured water main that caused a large sinkhole filled with water to develop at South 28th Avenue and Van Buren Street. NBC 6's Ari Odzer reports.

A precautionary boil water alert that had affected part of Hialeah since Dec. 21 was lifted Friday, officials said.

The Hialeah Department of Public Works lifted and cancelled the boil water alert that had covered the area extending to West 60th Street to the south, the city limits to the north and the area west of the Palmetto Expressway, the city said in a news release.

The alert had been issued due to low water pressure in the distribution system.

Local, county and state officials have been working to resolve the problem, and all sample test results for the past two days were within the established limits, the city said.

Hialeah's water meets or exceeds state and federal standards, the city said.

Residents may still see city crews working in the area of West 84th Street between West 30th Avenue and West 36th Avenue as they carry out routine maintenance related to the water distribution system, the city added.
