Area residents advised to boil drinking water

A break in a water line Monday morning left about 1,000 Dade City residents under a precautionary boil water notice until Wednesday afternoon. The notice applies to those living west of the U.S. 98 bypass, east of 13th Street, north of Willingham Avenue and south of Robinson Avenue. Officials are advising residents in that area to boil all water used for cooking or drinking for one minute. The necessary repairs have been made to the broken line, but water toxicology results won't be in until late Wednesday afternoon, officials said. For information, call the Dade City Utilities Department at (352) 523-5054.

Correction

Christine Ferreira is co-owner of a property in the Highlands that contains a portion of Meridian Boulevard. She is no longer married to the other co-owner, Chrysostomos Arianas. Ferreira said she opposes her ex-husband's plan to close the road unless the county buys it. While the two would split any proceeds from selling the land, Ferreira said, any extra money from selling or closing the road would go solely to Arianas. An article Friday was incorrect on those points.
