HOLLYWOOD (CBSMiami) — A boil water order issued for Hollywood residents Friday is now expanding to include parts of Davie.
The water main break took place Friday morning on Johnson Street near 19th Avenue.
As a result, the City’s Water Treatment Plant experienced a significant drop in pressure, below 20 psi which led the City of Hollywood to issue the precautionary boil water order for drinking purposes until further notice.
The order states Hollywood residents and Davie residents who receive water from Broward County Utilities should not drink tap water without boiling it first for at least one minute.

Only boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and food preparation.
Crews are on scene working to fix the damaged line.
