[ARCHIVED] Mandatory Boil Water Alert In Place City-wide

Boil Water Alert

The City of Hollywood Department of Public Utilities has announced a mandatory boil water alert of all residents in the City of Hollywood effective 2:15 p.m. on Sunday, September 10th. The City’s Water Treatment Plant experienced a significant drop in pressure during the storm.  As a result of this drop in pressure, the City is advising all property owners to boil their water for drinking purposes until further notice. Three water main breaks have now been identified and crews are working to repair these water lines.  

Residents should not use drink their tap water without boiling it first, as boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water. Bring all water to a rolling boil for one minute. Only boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, hand-washing dishes, and food preparation. Again, a boil water order is in effect for all residents in the City of Hollywood.  

As soon as Monday morning , utilities crews have isolated the damaged lines and are beginning to work on repairs. The breaks are located at: 1) 7500 block of McKinley Street, 2) 71st Terrace and Arthur Street and 3) 31st Road and Roosevelt Street. Water service in the immediate area of these breaks could be disrupted during the course of the repairs. Once the repairs are completed, the water must be sampled and tested. This will take at least 48 hours  Once the tests come back as clear, the City will post notification on the website, send out an email notification and issue a Code Red Emergency update.
