Boil Water Notice Issued After Water Main Break in Fort Lauderdale Neighborhood


A boil water notice remained in effect Thursday following a water main break in Fort Lauderdale Wednesday.

According to Fort Lauderdale officials, a contractor doing work in the intersection of Northeast 4th Street and Northeast 7th Avenue, within the Victoria Park neighborhood, struck a 12-inch water main.

Officials said crews completed repairs to the broken pipe Wednesday night and restored water service.

The neighborhood is one of several in Fort Lauderdale that had to deal with six sewer main breaks last December, which caused over 126 million gallons of sewage to spill into streets and canals.

The city says the water main break is not related to the repairs being done to the 16-inch sewer main in the same neighborhood.

They say no sewage is involved.

A boil water notice has been issued for properties from NE 2nd Street to NE 5th Street between NE 7th Avenue and NE 9th Avenue. It will remain in effect until surveys show the water is safe to drink.
