Davie lifts boil-water advisory



Davie officials have lifted a boil water advisory issued early Sunday morning after a malfunction at one of the town's water treatment plants.

The advisory was lifted at about 4:30 p.m. Tuesday after a water survey of the plant came back clean, according to a Town of Davie news release.

Davie had issued the advisory at about 5 a.m. Sunday after a valve at the Davie Water Treatment South Plant that should have been open briefly closed and although the plant was back to normal operation within 10 minutes and disinfectant levels were maintained throughout the malfunction testing began.

The plant was back to normal operation within 10 minutes and disinfectant levels stayed stable during the malfunction, but crews still tested water from more than 20 points in the service area and issued the boil water alert while they waited for the results to come in.
