New Tampa residents who get their water from the city are being asked to boil their water for at least the next 48 hours.
A power outage at the City of Tampa’s David L. Tippin Water Treatment Facility is the reason for the extra precautions. The outage has caused a temporary low pressure problem for some Tampa Water Department Customers and a complete loss of service for others, according to the city’s website.
Tampa Electric Co. and city crews are both onsite working to resolve the power outage.
More details about the outage and boil water notice will be posted on the city’s website as developments occur.
Stay with New Tampa Patch for updates as they become available.
