Precautionary Boil Water Notice in City of Deerfield Beach...I Hope Y'all Was Drinking Vodka

Well, remember this little post from Friday, April 20, 2012

City of Deerfield Beach to Residents: Let Them Drink Vodka!!!

How bout this one from Thursday April 26, 2012

City of Deerfield Beach: There May or May Not Be Truth to "There Must Be Something in the Water"

About 10 hours ago, we just received noticed that the City of Deerfield Beach is one of several cities on a "Precautionary Boil Water" notice.  The Sun-Sentinel and many other news media outlets have bombarded the airwaves and blogosphere with the "Boil Water" notice.

As reported by them 

A precautionary boil water notice was issued for parts of Broward County after a potable raw water well tested positive for a fecal indicator, officials said Friday. 
The water plant, which serves Broward County Water and Wastewater Services in Pompano Beach, Deerfield Beach, Lighthouse Point and Coconut Creek detected the fecal indicator, which are microbes that indicate the water could have human or animal waste. 
The well is no longer in service. Officials said additional samples will be taken from the well on Saturday and Sunday and the boil water notice will probably be rescinded on Monday.
Officials said people shouldn't drink the water without boiling it first. It must come to a rolling boil and be boiled for one minute. 
People with severely compromised immune systems, infants or the elderly may be at more of a risk and should consult medical professionals. 
Call 1-800-426-4791 for the EPA's Safe Drinking Water Hotline.
Which can be read, here. 

Maybe these stories are no related to the April 17, 20, 26 post about our water, but it is a little ironic and seems coincidental.

I remember the Observer having an article from the Charles Debrusca about the water problem and telling us about the 2 new water plants that have come on line.

I will continue to drink Vodka and I am now in full support of the City of Deerfield Beach voting to allow it's residents to purchase alcoholic beverages on Sunday before 12pm.  Since I will definately not be drinking City of Deerfield BEach water, even if this was coincidence and not related.  I just don't trust it now.

So, STOLI is my new best friend...

Thank you Charles Debrusca and City of Deerfield Beach.
