LUTZ, Fla. – Hillsborough County Water Resources today rescinded a precautionary boil water notice that affected some customers in the area of Lutz in northwest Hillsborough County.
On Friday, May 20, Hillsborough County Water Resources issued a precautionary boil water notice for some customers in Lutz in northwest Hillsborough County.

The general boundary of the impacted area is Dale Mabry Highway to the east, Roseate Drive (the Hillsborough County and Pasco County line) to the north, Lutz Lake Fern Road to the south, and the Suncoast Parkway to the west.
Water service to the area was temporarily interrupted at around 6:30 p.m. Thursday, May 19, after a contractor damaged a 12-inch water mainline.
The Florida Department of Health in Hillsborough County requires a precautionary boil water notice after pressure in the lines drops below a certain level. This notice means customers are advised, as a precautionary measure, to boil all tap water used for drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing teeth, or washing dishes.
