Precautionary Boil Water Notice Rescinded for Ruskin Customers
Water Leak That Impacted Some Ruskin Customers Also Repaired
The Hillsborough County Water Resources department today rescinded a precautionary boil water notice that affected customers in an area of Ruskin.
The precautionary boil water notice that was issued on Feb. 19 for Hillsborough County's potable water system that impacted customers in the area of East College Avenue and 15th Street S.E. in Ruskin is no longer in effect for any resident or commercial business.
The notice was lifted today after bacteriological sampling showed the water meets quality standards. The boundary for the precautionary boil water notice was south of East College Avenue and west of 15th Street S.E. For the area south and west of the Little Manatee River, the southern boundary was Universal Drive, and the western boundary was U.S. 41.
Hillsborough County Water Resources issued the precautionary boil water notice on Friday after the minimum water pressure in the County's water distribution system dropped below the regulatory level while work crews were working in the area of 410 E. College Ave. in Ruskin to repair a water line leak.
The Water Resources department also repaired the water line leak at 410 E. College Ave. in Ruskin that contributed to some customers potentially experiencing lower water pressure last week.
