Sewer Main Replacement in Progress

A sewer main replacement in the Tarpon River neighborhood is having an impact on several neighborhoods as tanker trucks are being used to vacuum and transport sewage. Neighbors may notice tanker trucks with hoses in manholes until the project is complete in early Fall 2017.

To report overflowing manholes or sewage spills, please call our 24-Hour Neighbor Call Center at 954-828-8000. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.

Always avoid standing water

  • Pedestrians and motorists are advised to avoid standing water and children should not play in standing water.
  • Potholes, open manholes, sinkholes, storm drains or sharp objects may be hidden just below the surface of standing water.
  • Standing water due to flooding, water main or sewer main breaks and overflows may contain potentially harmful germs and chemicals.
  • Exposure to contaminated standing water may cause health issues. Please seek medical attention if you suspect illness or infection.
