MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A precautionary boil water advisory has been ordered for areas serviced by NMB Water.

The order is due to a drop in water pressure throughout the distribution system at the Norwood Water Treatment Plant following a momentary power outage.

As a precaution, the city is advising that all water used for drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing teeth, or washing dishes be boiled prior to usage.

The notice will remain in effect for a minimum of 48 hours or until the Florida Department of Health deems it’s safe.

The order stretches for the entire service area of NMB Water.
