Squirrel Knocks Out Power Line for Water Supply, No Emergency Power Available

Tampa’s entire water system went offline last Friday.  Looks like a squirrel chewed through the power line, forcing half a million customers to boil their drinking water through the weekend.

Water bottles at local supermarkets flew off the shelfs.  Hotels rushed to buy water bottles and ice by the truckload.  Restaurants saw a larger clientele because they wanted a sip of their water.  Some were actually forced to shut down. 

And guess what? All of this could have been prevented with an emergency power generator.  With one of these babies installed, you can invite any varmint in town to chew through a power line and service will not be disrupted. 

“This is the first time, to my knowledge, that we have had a service area-wide, boil-water notice," said city Water Department Director Brad Baird.

Well, Baird, companies such as Power Plus offer a variety of power generators to avoid this kind of pandemonium. 

Power Plus! is a leading provider of reliable non-radioactive power generators across the United States and Canada.
