Boil Water Notices:
The boil water notice is still in effect for Town of Davie Utilities Service Areas and for residents who receive a water bill from Broward County or the City of Hollywood. The boil water information is as follows:
- Davie Utilities customers remain under a precautionary boil water order. This boil water notice impacts residents who receive their utility bill from the Town of Davie.
- Davie residents receiving water service from Broward County or the City of Hollywood are under a mandatory boil water order. This boil water notice impacts residents who receive their utility bill from Broward County or the City of Hollywood.
- If you receive your water bill from one of the following locations below, the notice does not apply to you:
- City of Sunrise
- City of Fort Lauderdale
- We advise that all water used for drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing teeth, or washing dishes be boiled. A rolling boil of one minute is sufficient.
- If you are unable to boil your water, tap water can be disinfected by adding 8 drops of unscented household bleach (4 – 6 % active ingredients) to each gallon of water, then mixing the water and allowing it to stand for a minimum period of 30 minutes. Note: Cloudy water requires 16 drops of bleach and a 30 minute contact time. For more information, please visit broward.org.
- You may use the water for bathing, laundry, and irrigation. All fixtures should run for several minutes to clear the lines in your home. You are safe showering under a boil water order, but should keep water out of the eyes and mouth.
- Bottled water is also an alternative.
- This precautionary boil water notice will remain in effect until the bacteriological survey shows that the water is safe to drink.
- The Town will communicate the cancellation (rescission) of the advisory.
- For questions and information regarding the boil water notice, please contact the Utilities Department at 954-327-3742 during normal business hours or 954-327-3765 after hours.
Due to Hurricane Irma, the Town had several water main breaks. The Davie Utilities is asking residents to continue to conserve water until the water main breaks are fixed.
