Boil water notice issued for some in Palma Ceia area

TAMPA — Some residents in the Palma Ceia area were issued a precautionary boil water notice Saturday.

The notice said water service would be interrupted from 5 to 10 p.m. Saturday while crews made emergency repairs to a water main break in the area of W Palmira Avenue and S Esperanza Avenue. Forty locations were affected, the water department said.

The notice advises residents to boil water used for drinking and cooking after it is turned back on. The notice will be lifted after two days of "satisfactory" water sample results.

Residents with questions about the notice can call the water department at (813) 274-7400.
