Boil Water Notice Lifted for Tampa Customers

This notice is archived content and this information may no longer be accurate.
The precautionary Boil Water Notice in effect for City of Tampa water customers who were affected by the transmission break on Bruce B. Downs Boulevard is lifted.

Test results returned over two consecutive days confirm that water being provided to affected customers is safe to consume.

The City of Tampa sincerely appreciates all customers’ patience as we worked to fully restore water service following the transmission main break.


Service was restored to all customers affected by the outage by Saturday, May 5.

Residents north of Fowler Avenue and any other customers who may have experienced a loss of pressure or service interruption were asked to begin boiling their water Friday, May 4, due to the water transmission main break. Those customers were advised to boil all water used for drinking and cooking until bacteriological testing was completed.
