Fort Lauderdale neighborhood under boil-water order after water main break

Residents of a senior housing complex in Fort Lauderdale’s Victoria Park neighborhood were advised by the city to boil water Tuesday after a water main broke.

New 6-inch water mains, fire hydrants and water service connections are being installed to serve 1,000 properties in Victoria Park, city spokesman Matt Little said.

One of those mains broke during construction, affecting residents of the 257-unit Gateway Terrace complex, at 1943 NE Sixth Court.

Water service is expected to be restored Tuesday afternoon, Little said. A precautionary boil-water notice is in effect until tests confirm the water is safe to drink.
