Belle Isle water main repair will mean shutdown, boil water order

You might want to pick up a gallon or two of drinking water at Publix today. And make some extra ice cubes.

Starting late Tuesday night, the city of Miami Beach will be repairing a water main that serves Belle Isle. The repair work will leave Belle Isle dry from 11 p.m. Tuesday to about 5 a.m. Wednesday.

Once water service returns, we’ll have a precautionary boil water order for about 72 hours, the Public Works Department says.

That means the water will be okay for showering, but you won’t want to be drinking from the tap. You ought to turn off your ice maker. And run your dishwasher in advance.

When tests shows the water is safe to drink, the city will alert us.
