Broward County has extended the Boil Water Alert for City of Hallandale Beach water customers until at least Saturday.  The latest test of water from a Broward County well used to supplement the water supply in Hallandale Beach and several cities in Southeastern Broward County returned positive results for the E-Coli bacteria.

Hallandale Beach customers are asked to continue using bottled water or to boil water for at least one minute before consuming, cooking or washing dishes. It is safe for bathing so long as you minimize ingesting water. It is safe for washing clothes.

The Broward County Health District is monitoring the testing and will alert the communities when the water is safe to drink.

Again, the boil water order has been extended until at least Saturday because of a positive E-coli test in a Broward County well.

Areas included in the advisory are customers of The City of Dania Beach Utilities, The City of Hallandale Beach Utilities, the City of Hollywood Utilities and Broward County Water and Wastewater Services customers in our service area 3A and 3BC affecting all of West Park, Pembroke Park, the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, Florida Power and Light, and parts of Dania Beach, Hollywood, Miramar, Pembroke Pines and Davie.

Do not drink the water without boiling it first.. Residents can call 954-831-3250 for additional information.

We will update you as soon as the order has been lifted.
