Boil Your Water Before Using. Broward County WWS Well Tested Positive for Fecal Indicator
Our water plant which serves Broward County Water and Wastewater Services (WWS) customers in Pompano Beach, Deerfield Beach, Lighthouse Point, and the City of Coconut Creek, detected fecal indicators (E. coli) in one of the CountyÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s wells - this well has been removed from service.
However as our customers, you have a right to know what happened and what we are further doing to correct this situation. One process control sample in our treatment plant well was positive for Total Coliform and E. coli. One of our follow up steps is to collect additional samples from this well, and from the distribution system, within 24 hours to determine the extent of the problem. This sampling began on May 26.
The program will impact a local audience through hands-on trips, as well as people across the globe via online education tools, including virtual expeditions, webinars, pod-casts, blogs, online curricula and social media. Students are lead through a series of field research activities and assignments that give them the feeling of actually being in the field. Interactive Twitter ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œteach-InsÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â every month provide teachers nationwide with knowledge and feedback on scientific topics of interest.
A leading expert at the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is urging the CaribbeanÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s 40 million people to be prepared for a tsunami, two years ahead of a planned early warning system for the region.
Wendy Watson-Wright, assistant director-general and executive secretary of the UNESCO-Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission, said the Indian Ocean Tsunami Early Warning System, coordinated through UNESCO-IOC, saved lives in that region following an 8.6 magnitude earthquake off northern Indonesia.
