Parts of New Tampa without water after main breaks
Text Size ****
TAMPA — A large portion of New Tampa is without water because a main transmission line ruptured, the Tampa water department said Friday afternoon.
Workers are assessing the break on Bruce B. Downs Boulevard between Amberly Drive and Tampa Palms Boulevard.
A transmission main is a large pipeline used to transport water into a community, water officials said. It was not immediately clear Friday afternoon how many water customers are affected."
Got this from (I think) TampaBay.com. Apparently there was an automobile accident that caused this, no mention of injuries. This is a block or two away from my house. Helicopters have been buzzing around for a while. There will probably be a boil water warning once it is repaired. Water is reportedly out from here to Florida Ave.
