The Pinellas County Utilities water system is safe and there is no need to boil water.

Duke Energy is working with the county to restore power on a priority basis to sewer pump stations. As this work continues, residents are reminded to limit water usage by remembering the following steps:

  • Do not pour water down the drain.
  • Avoid doing loads of laundry or running the dishwasher
  • Limit flushing toilets when possible.

Additionally as traffic signals continue experiencing outages, drivers are reminded to treat intersections with non-working lights as a four-way stop.

Pinellas County government offices and parks will remain closed Tuesday, Sept. 12, due to recovery efforts.
