BREAKING: Broward County, There Is Poo in the Water

A Broward County water plant serving Pompano Beach, Deerfield Beach, Lighthouse Point, and Coconut Creek has tested positive for “fecal indicators,” according to a statement just sent out by the county. The affected well has been shut down, but authorities are telling residents in those areas to not drink tap water without boiling it first:
Bring all water to a rolling boil, let it boil for one minute, and let it cool before using it. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water. You may also use bottled water. Use boiled or bottled water for drinking, making ice, preparing food, and washing dishes until further notice.
The well tested positive for E. coli and coliform bacteria, which can cause diarrhea, cramps, nausea, and headaches. The Broward County State Water System says infants, the elderly, and anyone with a compromised immune system are, as usual, at additional risk and should call a doctor with any specific health concerns.
