As you may be aware, the City of Fort Lauderdale announced Thursday, July 18 that a water main was damaged resulting in a temporary loss of water in the city and some surrounding areas. The Marriott Harbor Beach was therefore required to evacuate July 18 reservations. As of July 19, the water service has been restored to Fort Lauderdale water customers. A temporary repair has been completed of the 42-inch water main that supplies raw water from the City’s wellfields to the Fiveash water treatment plant. With a temporary repair in place, crews will focus on the permanent repair. A boil water notice is in effect for all water customers until further notice, so it is advised not to drink tap water while visiting. Please note, the Summer Forum Pre-Course Workshop and AARC Summer Forum meeting are currently planned to take place with minimal schedule changes beginning Friday, July 19 – Monday, July 22.
Current time and location changes are as follows:
