City issues boil water alert for New Tampa

TAMPA — People who live in New Tampa are advised to boil water before consumption, water officials announced Thursday.

Construction work in the area caused a drop in water pressure Thursday that was quickly restored, said the Tampa Water Department.

The advisory affects homes east of Interstate 275, west of Morris Bridge Road, north of Dona Michelle Drive and south of County Line Road.

Hillsborough County's Health Department recommends flushing all spigots until water runs clear, and boiling water used for drinking or food preparation.

The Water Department was conducting water tests and said it will notify residents when the advisory has been lifted.
