A precautionary boil water notice for approximately 500 water customers in South Tampa has been lifted.
Customers affected by the precautionary boil water notice were bounded by S. Himes Avenue on the west, W. Ballast Point Blvd. on the north, Hillsborough Bay on the east, and MacDill AFB on the south.
Samples taken in the area indicated potential contamination but additional water samples taken confirmed the water safe to consume.
The city of Tampa asks those with a well on their property within those boundaries to contact the Water Department by calling the Utilities Call Center at (813) 274-8811. Press option "4" for "water emergency" to reach a representative.
