Those who were exempt from an on-campus boil water notice last week, were among the 560,000 Tampa citizens who were placed under a precautionary boil water notice this weekend after a rodent chewed a power line causing the loss of power at the City of Tampa’s David L. Tippin Water Treatment Facility.
While most of campus receives its water supply through USF’s Physical Plant, some parts of campus, including Greek Village, Moffitt Cancer Center, Shriner’s Hospital and USF Research Park are serviced by the City of Tampa Water Department.
The boil water notice was lifted Sunday morning after tests confirmed the water was uncontaminated.
