South Tampa residents who get their water from the city are being asked to boil their water until Sunday afternoon.
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.
More details about the outage and boil water notice will be posted on the city’s website as developments occur.
