Tampa issues precautionary Boil Water notice for New Tampa

City of Tampa Water Department customers in the New Tampa area may have experienced a temporary decrease in water pressure this afternoon as a result of construction activity in the area. Full water pressure was restored to the area shortly afterwards.

The potentially affected area was east of I-275, west of Morris Bridge Road, north of Dona Michelle Drive and south of County Line Road.
As a precaution and in conjunction with Health Department guidance, the City of Tampa recommends customers in the area:

• Flush all exterior spigots first and then run interior faucets to clear the interior system.
• Boil water for drinking and food preparation.

As soon as water quality testing is completed the precautionary boil water notice will be lifted.
