DELRAY BEACH, Fla.– A water main break in Kings Point community, west of Delray Beach, has left nearly 100 residents without water and created a sinkhole in a parking lot Saturday morning.
Francine Freitas, a spokeswoman for the Palm Beach County Water Utilities Department said that workers for the department arrived at around 8:30 a.m. “and worked to immediately repair the break,”
The sinkhole in the parking lot of the retirement community also claimed the vehicle of Kings Point resident, Ingrid Robinson.
According to the Water Utilities Department, the cause of the break was aging pipes, an ongoing problem.
Freitas said that water services have been restored, but residents of the area should still boil their water before use until two clean-water tests are received and this process usually takes about 72 hours.
