Village of Bal Harbour under a Precautionary Boil Water Order

MIAMI (January 22, 2017)

Due to a temporary loss of water service due to an emergency repair of a 30-inch water main, the Village of Bal Harbour will be under a Precautionary Boil Water Order. One home in Bay Harbor Islands also is affected. Water service has already been restored.

Now that water service has been restored, all water used for drinking or cooking purposes should be boiled until further notice prior to consumption. Water should be brought to a full rolling boil for at least one minute. There is no problem with using the water for bathing and other household needs.

The Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (WASD) will be sampling the water. Once all tests are cleared, the boil water restrictions will be lifted.

If you have any questions, please contact the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department’s Communications Center at 305-274-9272, 24 hours a day.

Repairs to the water line on Bay Harbor Islands, first installed in 1989, continue to be made. Commuters may want to avoid 96thStreet/Kane Concourse between West Harbor Drive and Bay Harbor Terrace until the repairs are completed.

Lane closures/traffic detours may be necessary to accommodate the repairs.

It is the priority of the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department to provide safe, reliable service to its customers. For additional information about
