With the city of Tampa and some parts of Hillsborough County under a boil water notice, the city is offering free bottled water to residents.
Residents will not be required to show ID and bottled water is limited to 1 case per household. Households with more than 4 members may receive 2 cases.
While picking up water, residents may also pick up two free face coverings per person to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Residents can pick up bottled water or face coverings, while supplies last:
- Today from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m
- Wednesday, December 9, from 8 a.m. to 7p.m
