Precautionary Boil Water Notice in Effect for South Beach

July 21, 2023

Late yesterday afternoon, a private contractor hit a 20" water main in the vicinity of Alton Road at 6 Street, which resulted in a water main break. Due to the drop in water pressure, a Precautionary Boil Water Notice is currently in effect for all areas south of 23 Street from the ocean to the bay, including the Sunset Harbour neighborhood. The Venetian Islands are NOT part of this advisory.

The Precautionary Boil Water Notice will remain in effect until drinking water test results pass for two consecutive days, as per Florida Administrative Code. Testing will be conducted daily.


Residents, visitors, and businesses are advised to boil all water used for drinking, cooking/food preparation, making ice, brushing teeth or washing dishes. A rolling boil of one minute is sufficient. Bottled water may be used as an alternative.


The City of Miami Beach will notify residents and businesses when the Precautionary Boil Water Notice has been lifted.
