Precautionary Boil Water Notice for Pebble Creek Community
Hillsborough County, Fla. (Nov. 2, 2017) - The Hillsborough County Public Utilities Department has issued a precautionary boil water notice for customers in the Pebble Creek community.
Water service to the community was temporarily interrupted Thursday morning when a 12-inch water main broke at a water pump station at 19001 Bruce B. Downs Blvd. Service has since been restored.
The precautionary boil water notice impacts approximately 2,000 homes and businesses in Pebble Creek. Customers are advised to boil their water as a precautionary measure until a rescission notice is issued, which typically takes 48 hours.
The Hillsborough County Health Department requires a precautionary boil water notice after pressure in the lines drops below a certain level. Although it is unlikely there is any contamination in the system, the notice means customers are advised, as a precautionary measure, to boil tap water for cooking and drinking. A full rolling boil for one minute is sufficient; cool before using. Allow the water to run until it is clear before washing clothes. Discard any ice from automatic ice-makers.
