Boil water order in Miami Lakes after waterline break


Residents of multi-family apartment buildings in Miami Lakes Thursday night were advised to boil their water until further notice.

Town officials said during a preventative maintenance on a fire hydrant earlier in the day, a water pipe ruptured in the area of Northwest 64 Avenue and Miami Lakeway North.

Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department crews are on site to make repairs.

For now, a localized boil water order is being issued for two nearby multi-family apartment buildings.
