 ZEPHYRHILLS TO PROVIDE FREE SPRING WATER TO
 SOUTH FLORIDA RESIDENTS HARDEST HIT BY ANDREW
 MIAMI, Aug. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Zephyrhills Spring Water, Florida's largest bottled water company, is donating 30,000 gallons of spring water a day to the South Florida community to help alleviate the drinking water shortage caused by Hurricane Andrew. The water will be distributed via five tanker trucks, each of which contains 6,000 gallons of spring water.
 The first four tankers will start distributing water at 10 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 28 at the following sites in Miami, Miami Beach and Homestead:
 Homestead Middle School Convention Center
 650 NW 2nd Ave., Homestead across from City Hall, Miami Beach
 Richmond Heights Middle School North Shore
 15015 SW 103rd Ave., Miami 73rd & Collins, Miami Beach
 A fifth tanker will start distributing water at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 29 at:
 Cutler Ridge Mall
 112th Ave. at 211th Street
 SW corner behind Sears, Cutler Ridge
 The tankers will be distributing free spring water from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. seven days a week until the area's tap water is restored to normal. Residents should bring sterilized, non-metal containers with caps for the free water. In order to provide water to as many needy residents as possible, a three gallon at-a-time limit per person will be imposed.
 Larry Pelleg, regional manager for Tampa-based Zephyrhills, said the tankers are being used because it is the quickest way to distribute water to residents. He said the Zephyrhills facility, which is located 25 miles northeast of Tampa, is operating at capacity to make every effort to keep up with demand.
 Pelleg said the company will provide the free spring water via tankers until the area's tap water is restored to normal. The severe damage from Andrew caused a drop in the city's water pressure and salt water intrusion in the water supply. Hardest hit areas, like several Homestead neighborhoods and trailer parks, have lost water supplies altogether.
 Zephyrhills is coordinating the free water distribution with the Red Cross, local sheriff departments and the Florida Department of Environmental Regulations.
