Precautionary Boil Water Order for Village of Bal Harbour now lifted

MIAMI (January 26, 2017)

The Precautionary Boil Water Order for the Village of Bal Harbour and for one home in Bay Harbor Islands has now been lifted. This means that residents no longer need to boil their water prior to drinking or cooking. The Precautionary Boil Water Order was initiated on Sunday due to a temporary loss of water service caused by an emergency repair of a 28-year-old, 30-inch water main.

The break occurred at 96thStreet/Kane Concourse between West Harbor Drive and Bay Harbor Terrace in Bay Harbor Islands. Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department lab officials tested the water and had clear testing allowing for the lifting of the Precautionary Boil Water Order.

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