Water Service Restored to Country Chase Townhomes
Hillsborough County, Fla. (Dec. 26, 2017) - Water service has been restored to customers in Country Chase Townhomes and the surrounding neighborhood, but a precautionary boil water notice remains in effect..
Water service to the community was temporarily interrupted Tuesday afternoon so workers could replace a leaking valve. In addition to about 190 units in Country Chase Townhomes on Country White Drive, about 120 homes on Country Chase Boulevard, Tidal Bay Lane, and Rustic View Court were affected.
Water service has now been restored to all customers affected by the leak.
The precautionary boil water notice advises customers to boil their water as a precautionary measure until a rescission notice is issued.
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.
