Workers disinfect and power wash Northeast Fifth Street at the Victoria Park neighborhood in Fort Lauderdale on Sunday, Dec. 29, 2019, three days after a sewer main ruptured.

Crews in Fort Lauderdale are working to repair a pipe break for the seventh time in the last month — but at least this time it isn’t sewage flooding the streets.
