Boil water notice issued for Crystal Springs area

Pasco County Utilities issued a boiled water notice for its customers in Crystal Springs after storms knocked a generator off line.

Spokeswoman Sue Chase said the notice is part of a standard procedure whenever a generator loses power.

The notice will continue until "normal water service is restored and a bacteriological survey shows that the water is safe for drinking and cooking," she wrote in a statement released Thursday afternoon.

Until the notice is lifted, the utility is urging residents to bring water to a rolling boil for at least a minute before using it. The utility company also recommends turning off ice makers, discarding ice made within the last two hours and cleaning ice trays.
