IMPORTANT DRINKING WATER NOTICE

 

On Monday, April 16, the City of Tampa will begin a routine system maintenance program. The water treatment

method will be changed temporarily from chloramine to chlorine disinfection. This type of routine maintenance

adds an extra layer of protection for the water we deliver to you. The switch to chlorine disinfection will be in effect

from April 16 to April 30, 2018. The water is perfectly safe to drink during this period, though you may notice a difference

in the taste or odor of the water. Users of kidney dialysis machines and owners of aquatic life should not be impacted,

but should contact their respective service providers for more information.

 

If you have questions, please visit the City of Tampa Utilities website at

tampagov.net/WaterMaintenance or call Customer Service at (813) 274-8811, option 3.

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

Q: Why is this necessary?

A: Periodic chlorine disinfection reduces the potential for future

occurrence of coliform or other types of bacteria in the system and

provides an added layer of protection for your drinking water.

 

Q: Is my water safe to drink during the maintenance period?

A: Yes. This maintenance program is routine. It ensures that we

deliver the highest quality water possible to your home or business.

While chlorine disinfection is in place, we will continue daily

monitoring of water quality throughout our system.

 

Q: Do I need to do anything different about my water use during

the maintenance period?

A: You may experience a slight difference in taste and/or smell of

your drinking water during this temporary change in treatment.

These are normal occurrences and carry no negative health effects

for the general population. Users of kidney dialysis machines and

owners of aquatic life should not be impacted but should contact

their respective service providers for more information.

 

Q: Do I need to boil the water?

A: No, boiling the water is not necessary. Customers may notice a

change to the taste and smell from the water and may want to let

their water tap run for several minutes. Odor issues will subside
