Update 1 - North Rome Avenue Closure Precautionary Boil Water Notice is Rescinded

This notice is archived content and this information may no longer be accurate.

This is an update to a previous release. Ongoing testing by the Tampa Water Department shows that it is no longer necessary to boil water in the vicinity of the Rome Avenue water main break. Laboratory results show the water is sanitary and safe for drinking and food preparation without boiling.


North Rome Avenue remains closed from West Hillsborough Avenue to West Burke Street. Barricades and signs are located in the area to assist with traffic flow and rerouting. Please use caution when driving in the area. Modifications to lane closures may be necessary during the course of restoration.


The repair work is completed. Roadway restoration, with a return to normal traffic patterns, is expected to be completed by Tuesday, June 12. Restoration schedules are contingent upon weather conditions.


The staff and crews of the Tampa Water Department appreciate everyone's patience during this time.
