WMNF Drive-Time News Thursday | Listen to this entire show:

Last Friday the City of Tampa lost power to a water treatment plant.

It caused a loss of pressure and a precautionary boil water notice that lasted until Sunday morning.

Thursday morning Tampa City Council members heard a revised timeline of how the problem developed from Tampa Water Department director Brad Baird, beginning with what happened after a squirrel chewed through a power supply line and the water treatment plant had to draw all of is electricity from a second power line.
