Boil Water Notice Lifted for Tampa Residents


The Tampa Water Department lifted a precautionary Boil Water Notice Monday for New Tampa residents after a water transmission main break Friday on Bruce B. Downs Boulevard.

Tampa residents north of Fowler Avenue and those who experienced a loss of water pressure were asked to boil water for drinking or cooking until the Tampa Water Department tested the water for bacteria.

The test results over the passed two days confirmed the water is safe to consume.
