Precautionary Boil Water Notice Issued has been lifted.

The Precautionary Boil Water Notice issued in South Beach on the evening of July 20 has been lifted after two consecutive days of satisfactory drinking water test results and approval by the Florida Department of Health.

Residents, businesses and visitors should allow the water to run for five minutes at each tap to flush the lines. Remember to include drinking fountains, ice makers (discard the first binful), soda machines, etc. when flushing the lines.

The notice was issued after a private contractor hit a 20″ water main in the vicinity of Alton Road at 6 Street that resulted in a water main break. Due to the drop in water pressure, a Precautionary Boil Water Notice was issued for all areas south of 23 Street from the ocean to the bay. There are no other Precautionary Boil Water Notices in place on Miami Beach.
