The City of Hollywood Department of Public Utilities has announced a mandatory boil water alert of all residents in the City of Hollywood effective 2:15 p.m. on Sunday, September 10th. The City’s Water Treatment Plant has experienced a significant drop in pressure, below 20 psi, which is an indication of a significant water main break. As a result of this drop in pressure, the City is advising all property owners to boil their water for drinking purposes until further notice.
Residents should not use the water without boiling it first, as boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water. Bring all water to a boil and let it continue boiling for one minute. Only boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and food preparation. Again, a boil water order is in effect for all residents in the City of Hollywood.
As soon as conditions will allow, crews will work to isolate the damaged line and begin the repairs. The City will advise when the order has been lifted.
