Boil Water Notice Lifted for Tampa Customers
Tampa water is safe to drink and use for cooking again according to the City of Tampa website.
City officials lifted the precautionary "Boil Water Notice" that has been in effect since Friday afternoon for all Tampa water customers.
Tests confirmed that the 25 water samples taken Saturday showed no contamination.
The city's website message also included this thank you to water customers:
The City of Tampa sincerely appreciates all customers’ patience as we worked to fully restore water service following a power failure at our water treatment facility.
A power outage Friday caused a temporary loss of pressure within the water systems prompting the "boil water notice" as a precaution against possible bacteria contamination.
