Pinellas County Utilities issues precautionary boil water notice

Pinellas County Utilities has issued a precautionary boil water notice in the areas of Redington Shores, and portions of Seminole and Indian Shores.

Until required bacteriological testing is completed, boiling tap water is recommended for at least three minutes before consuming it to kill any potential impurities, or drinking bottled water. The affected area includes Redington Shores, the southernmost parts of Indian Shores. In Seminole, the area extends from 94th Avenue North to Park Boulevard, and from 125th Street North to Oakhurst Road. Officials from Pinellas County Utilities have determined that a water main break was the cause of the service interruption.

The water main break that caused the service interruption has been isolated, and pressure is back to normal. Pinellas County Utilities started sampling activities this evening and expects the precautionary boil water notice to be lifted in approximately 48 hours, pending satisfactory water quality test results.
