BROWARD COUNTY, Fla. – A portion of Broward County was issued a boil water notice this week due to a lightning strike at Broward’s 2A water treatment plant, but that notice has been rescinded for the affected areas.

According to Broward County officials, Coconut Creek, including the Hillsboro Pines neighborhood, was initially the only area Thursday that had not yet gotten their bacteriological sample results back, so residents there remained under the boil water notice, however, the city’s website on Friday stated that the boil water notice has now been lifted there, as well.

According to the county, the lightning strike “impacted the capabilities of the pumping station, which resulted in very little to low water pressure in all of Lighthouse Point, northern portions of Pompano Beach and parts of Deerfield Beach.”
