Reclaimed Water Service Outage in East Clearwater
Due to a reclaimed water main break that occurred on Sunday, July 2, reclaimed water service for homes along the eastern portion of Clearwater have experienced no availability of reclaimed water or intermittent service. The city has been working on repair of the broken pipeline, and as of July 14, 2017, repairs are taking longer than expected. The city is working as quickly as it can to fix the broken line. Clearwater Public Utilities hopes to be able to restore at least partial reclaimed water service by mid-next week.
