Precautionary boil water order lifted


The precautionary boil water order issued on Thursday, September 22th that affected a portion of Hialeah in bounded by West 84th Street (also known as Northwest 138th Street) on the North, Okeechobee Road on the South, from Red Road on the east to West 36th Avenue (also known as Northwest 97th Avenue) on the west has now been lifted. Residents no longer have to boil the water used for drinking and cooking.

The Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (WASD) has tested water samples since the Precautionary Boil Water Order was issued. All samples have returned clear.

The precautionary boil water order was issued after a contractor punctured a 54-inch water main on Red Road and West 60th Street, resulting in water service being shut down to the area. WASD crews repaired the water main and resumed service to the area later that day.

It is the priority of the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department to provide safe, reliable service to its customers. If you have any questions or concerns about your service, call the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department's Communications Center at 305-274-9272, 24 hours a day.
