Residents in a section of North Ocean Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale can expect issues with their water service beginning Monday and are advised to boil their water as a precaution, city officials said.

The boil water notice is in effect until crews finish repairing a water line in the 2200 block of North Ocean Boulevard and a bacteriological survey shows the water is safe to drink in the area, city officials said.

Residents are advised that all water used for drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing teeth or washing dishes should be boiled. A rolling boil of one minute is sufficient, city officials said.

The northbound lanes of A1A (North Ocean Boulevard), are expected to be closed from Northeast 21st Street to Northeast 23rd Street through Monday night. Traffic is being diverted and motorists are asked to seek alternate routes.
