Q.

How do I report a Water Main Break or Sewer Back Up?

A.

All water main breaks and sewer back ups are considered an emergency situation.  If sited, please call the Water Plant Office at 954-924-3747. A repair crew will be dispatched as soon as possible. The plant operator will contact the employee "on-call", who will then check the site to confirm a main break, service leak, or back up. Once this has been confirmed a Water or Sewer Department crew will be dispatched as soon as possible. If it is a water main break or leak the time the water is off will be affected by many factors, including weather conditions, location of main break, size of main, type of main break, depth of main, etc.. The crew will attempt to notify all affected customers and businesses. If necessary we will issue a “Precautionary Boil Water Notice”. It is a notification that advises customers to boil tap water used for drinking, cooking and ice-making until tests verify the water is safe to drink by the Broward County Health Department. You will be notified by through news media when the “Boil Water Notice” is lifted. It is not necessary to boil water for showering or other external uses. This notice will outline the necessary steps to ensure safe water consumption. In addition, The City of Dania Beach will work to have services restored as soon as possible. If you have additional questions or concerns please contact us.
