The break happened in the area of 100 South Birch Road on Fort Lauderdale Beach.
The city said the leak has been isolated and water is no longer flowing out of the damaged pipe. Due to the depth of the pipe and the sandy soil conditions, additional materials and equipment are required to secure the area around the break.READ MORE: Florida Manatee Deaths Rise As Pollutants Kill Seagrass
Properties in the area are experiencing low pressure and some have no water.
Water service has been restored to properties in the area, however, the Jackson Tower and Portofino complexes remain without service.
Speaking of sewage leaks, the last one at George English Park, which the city thought it had temporarily fixed with a bypass line until they could repair the 42-inch pipe, has begun to leak again. A line stop on one end of the bypass pipe is leaking and a small amount of sewage is going into Middle River.MORE NEWS: Look Up South Florida! Orionid Meteor Shower On Display This Month
The city said they hope to have that leak plugged, so that all the sewage flows into the bypass pipe, by midnight.
