The City of Pembroke Pines has issued an immediate precautionary boil water notice, as a result of a water main break west of Pines Boulevard and S.W. 145th Avenue Thursday morning.
In a statement released by the city late Thursday, it recommended that all water used for drinking, cooking, making ice, washing dishes, or brushing teeth be boiled, as a precautionary measure. A rolling boil of at least one minute prior to consuming is sufficient. Bottled water may also be used. The tap water is safe for non-consumptive uses. This precautionary notice will remain in effect until a bacteriological survey shows that the water is safe to drink, at which point the boil water notice will be rescinded. This testing normally takes 2-3 days to complete, according to the statement.
If you have any questions regarding the testing of the water, contact:
