The water flow in the line has been brought under control and repairs are underway. Crews will work through the night to complete the repair. It is anticipated that water pressure will be restored to usable level by morning with weather cooperation. Pressure will be lower than normal until the pipe restraint is cured to full strength. The boil water notice will remain in effect until testing shows all is clear, at least 2 more days.

A Cat’s Tale… It all began on a typical hot and humid Thursday in Tarpon Springs… When Officer Damien Schmidt came to the rescue of a 4-week-old kitten that had managed to lodge itself in the engine compartment of a jeep. Its woeful cries coming from beneath the vehicle prompted a call to the police department who then quickly dispatched Officer Schmidt to lend a helping hand. Exhibiting his own catlike dexterity, Officer Schmidt crawled beneath the jeep and prodded the frightened kitten to where he could retrieve it unharmed. Today, the kitten rests comfortably in Officer Schmidt’s home… temporarily he says… until a forever home can be found.


We would like to extend our deepest appreciation to everyone that attended and participated in last evening's Police Memorial Ceremony. Thank you for your support.

It is a bittersweet day for all of us here at Tarpon Springs PD as we say good-bye and best wishes to one of Tarpon’s most enduring and respected officers. After nearly 27 years of service, Corporal ClydeThornton is retiring today. We wish him the very best as he begins a new chapter in his life. Please read Cpl. Thornton’s open letter to the community.
