Below is more on this news (that was misreported by TV news stations CBS12 and ABC25) which has now been resolved: the water is now safe again in Lake Osborne Estates. Here is a quote from The Palm Beach Post:

“After a small main break on Nov. 10 was repaired, bacteriological samples were collected and later tested positive for E. coli, a bacteria that is mostly harmless, but could cause diarrhea, severe anemia or kidney failure.” [emphasis added]
Quote by Post reporter Kevin Thompson in an article datelined Nov. 18th, titled “Boil-water order lifted for Lake Osborne after E. coli bacteria scare”.
