Work on lines will disrupt water service in Brooksville on Oct. 11


Work to affect water service

The city will have water service interruptions between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. today in neighborhoods while it updates its water-distribution system and updates water meters. Affected residences are in Three Seasons Mobile Home Mark, Da-Mac Estates and others near Howell and Yontz roads. Once service is restored, residents will be under a "boil water notice" until water tests reveal no bacteria. Bacterial water samples must be contamination-free for two straight days. It is anticipated that water will be okay for drinking on Thursday. For information, contact the Brooksville Public Works Department at (352) 540-3860 or (352) 540-3810, ext. 37404.

  5. Email warning ignored before St. Pete started spewing sewage


    ST. PETERSBURG — A draft report lays blame for the city's sewage crisis squarely on the administration of Mayor Rick Kriseman and a cascading series of errors that started with the now infamous shuttering of the Albert Whitted Water Reclamation Facility in 2015.

    Signs at North Shore Park in St. Petersburg warn people in September 2016 to stay out of the water due to contamination from partially treated sewage from the city's overwhelmed sewer system. St. Petersburg dumped up to 200 million gallons of sewage over 13 months from 2015-16. A new state report blames much of the crisis on mistakes made by the administration of Mayor Rick Kriseman, but also critcizes past administrations. [LARA CERRI   |   Times]
