A boil water advisory for Hallandale Beach residents living east of the Intracoastal Waterway was lifted Thursday, according to city spokesman Peter Dobens.
The alert was issued Wednesday after a water main break at 1980 S. Ocean Dr. left about 8,000 customers without water for six hours.
An eight-inch water line broke as a subcontractor placed a fiber optic line in the right-of-way. The break sent water across two of the three northbound lanes of South Ocean Drive.
The alert was lifted at 4 p.m. Thursday after water samples came back clear.
The citys communication system which dials every telephone land line within a designated area to deliver a recorded message let residents in the area know the alert was lifted.
