Boil water notices remain in effect for several Broward cities

Generally, a boil water order applies to water used for drinking and food preparation. Residents are safe showering under a boil water order, but should keep water out of the eyes and mouth.

Florida Department of Health in Broward County officials advise residents unsure of the quality of their water to take one of three recommended actions:

• Boil water before use, holding it to a rolling boil for one minute (preferred method)

• Disinfect water by adding eight drops of plain unscented household bleach per gallon of water, and let it stand for 30 minutes before drinking it. If the water remains cloudy after 30 minutes, repeat the procedure.

• Use bottled water
