Palm Harbor residents on boil-water notice can resume normal water use

PALM HARBOR — A precautionary boil-water notice issued Tuesday has been rescinded, Pinellas County Utilities officials said Thursday. Those impacted will be notified.

The county told area residents to boil all drinking or cooking water after a contractor hit and damaged a 12-inch water main. The notice impacted approximately 35 addresses near U.S. 19 and Alderman Road.

The leak was fixed Tuesday afternoon, but work crews remained at the site to assess the damage, stabilize the pipeline and make repairs. Two consecutive bacteriological results, upstream and downstream of the repair, confirmed that the water is safe to drink and that normal water use can resume.

Pinellas County Utilities brought in backfill to cover the pipeline, and the Department of Transportation is working on restoration of damage to U.S. 19.

Two southbound lanes are open to accommodate traffic around the work area.

  2. Hackers hide cyberattacks in social media posts

    Business

    SAN FRANCISCO — It took only one attempt for Russian hackers to make their way into the computer of a Pentagon official. But the attack didn't come through an email or a file buried within a seemingly innocuous document.

    Jay Kaplan and Mark Kuhr, former NSA employees and co-founders of Synack, a cybersecurity company, in their office in Palo Alto, Calif., in 2013. While last year's hacking of senior Democratic Party officials raised awareness of the damage caused if just a handful of employees click on the wrong emails, few people realize that a message on Twitter or Facebook could give an attacker similar access to their system.
