This is the line for water at Riverland Park in Fort Lauderdale amid the 24-hour water crisis caused by damaged water main.

A boil water notice was lifted Tuesday morning for additional Fort Lauderdale and Oakland Park neighborhoods affected last week by a water outage from a broken pipe. On Sunday, the notice was lifted for the city of Fort Lauderdale and several surrounding municipalities.

“Bacteriological surveys show that the water is safe to drink and for all other uses,” the city stated Tuesday morning.

The notice first went into effect Thursday after a patch repair to the 42-inch water main broken by FPL subcontractor Florida Communication Concepts Wednesday afternoon.
