BOYNTON BEACH, FL– The City of Boynton Beach is working to clear millions of gallons of sewage that spilled into the Intracoastal Waterway after a pipe broke earlier this week.
According to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, a 20-inch sanitary sewer force main broke inside a stormwater conflict structure Monday at 625 E. Boynton Beach Blvd.
The Utilities Department successfully bypassed the main break on Thursday around 6:00 p.m. which stopped the leak according to spokeswoman Chelsea Sanabia.
The city is working with Clean Harbors and some commercial divers to repair the break:
“The city will continue to clean up the waterway, work on necessary repairs, and replacing the pipe,” Sanabia said. “The water in the Intracoastal will continue to be tested and the public will be notified once the water is deemed safe.”
