DAVIE, Fla. - Authorities issued a boil water notice in areas of Davie that was in effect Sunday.

Authorities advised residents whose water service depends on Davie should boil their water for one minute before using it. Customers between State Road 7 and Hiatus Road are included (see map).

Water is safe for bathing, laundry, and yard work, officials said. Another tip: Run the water for several minutes on all fixtures to clear the lines in your home.

On Monday morning, Superintendent Broward Schools Superintendent Runcie says there are seven schools in the Davie boil water zone. They stocked those schools with bottled water and took extra steps to make sure no one drinks the water until they are in the clear.

Crews are monitoring the situation. They will alert the public when the water is safe to drink.
