Officials advise no contact with the water until the sewage is cleared. The water advisory begins at East Sunrise Boulevard and continues south. No date for an all-clear has been given. This report is by Linda Trischitta of The Sun Sentinel of Fort Lauderdale.
A break in an 18-inch sewer main sent an estimated 100,000 gallons of sewage over five hours into the Intracoastal Waterway and streets on the beach, Fort Lauderdale officials said Monday.
