ST. PETERSBURG, FL (October 14, 2016) – Crews are on the scene near Albert Whitted Airport to repair a 4-inch potable (drinking) water line break affecting the United States Coast Guard Station. Repairs are underway and service is expected to be restored by noon today.

Sanitary sewer service and the reclaimed water system are not affected by this repair. During the investigation, and to isolate the problem, wastewater was diverted to the decommissioned Albert Whitted Water Reclamation Facility temporarily affecting the incoming flow at the Southwest Water Reclamation Facility. When it was determined that the break was in a potable line, wastewater flows were directed to the Southwest facility as normal. No wastewater discharge of any kind occurred as a result of this investigation. 

To report a city public works issue, please contact the Mayor’s Action Center at 727-893-7111, or online at
