Published Jul. 9, 2014

DADE CITY — A temporary boil water notice is in effect for the Lake Jovita region this morning.

A temporary electrical distraction prompted Pasco County Utilities to issue the notice about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday. Utility customers should use a 1-minute rolling boil and should discard any ice made between 11:30 a.m. and 11:30 p.m. Ice makers should be turned off.

According to a message released by Pasco County Utilities, the notice will only be rescinded after normal water service is restored and a bacteriological survey shows the water is safe for drinking and cooking.
