Officials issued a precautionary boil water notice Tuesday afternoon for some residents of St. Pete Beach and Treasure Island.
The notice was issued after a reduction in water pressure occurred in the area between 116th Avenue and 45th Avenue, including the Isle of Capri neighborhood. The inadvertent reduction occurred during an upgrade of a potable water pumping station in the area. Though nearly normal water pressure was restored, Pinellas County officials issued a precautionary notice.
Microbes, if present in the water, can cause diarrhea, cramps, nausea, headaches or other symptoms.
The boil water notice will be in effect for at least 48 hours or until test results confirm the water is safe to drink.
