Fort Lauderdale water plant ‘kept together by spit and chewing gum’

The 42-inch pipe carries water from underground wells to the Fiveash plant off Powerline Road, southeast of Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport, where it’s treated and distributed to faucets in Fort Lauderdale, Oakland Park, Tamarac, Wilton Manors, Davie, Port Everglades, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea and Sea Ranch Lakes.
