Should I still be boiling my water post Irma? Check here.
Check here.. After Hurricane Irma, several cities in Miami-Dade and Broward counties issued boil water notices because of ruptured pipes or damaged sewer lines.
Some cities have since lifted the orders, others have not.
Some cities, like Dania Beach, have issued boil water advisories for only part of the city, depending on where a person lives.
In the case of Dania Beach, only Broward County utility customers who live west of I-95 have to boil their water.
There is no boil-water order at this time.
The water should be mixed and allowed to stand at least 30 minutes before use.
If the water is cloudy, health officials advise using 16 drops of bleach and a 30-minute waiting time.
For a full list of communities affected, the Florida Department of Health is maintaining a rolling list at www.floridahealth.gov.
