MANATEE COUNTY, FL (Friday, September 16, 2022) – Manatee County Utilities Department will be issuing a Precautionary Boil Water Notice for our customers between 302 and 314 60th St, 307 thru 311 59th St, 302 thru 315 58th St, 5302 thru 5501 Holmes Blvd, 210 and 304 56th St, 5701 thru 6303 Holmes Blvd, and 5704 thru 6001 Marina Dr, on Wednesday, September 21, 2022, after the water has been restored.

A hydrant replacement will be scheduled for Tuesday, September 20, 2022. The water will be shut off from 9:00 PM - 5:00 AM. Customers are advised that once service is restored, all water used for drinking or cooking should be boiled as a precaution. A rolling boil of one minute is sufficient. As an alternative, bottled water may be used.

This precautionary notice will remain in effect until a bacteriological survey has shown the water to be safe, normally 24-48 hours. A Rescission Notice will be issued when lifted. If residents have any questions, they may call 941-792-8811 ext: 5268 or 5216 between 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

*Regulations require that two consecutive samples be collected for bacteriological quality following the water being shut off.

In order to restore full service as soon as possible, the Department of Health allows rescission of the precautionary boil water notice if the first sample is bacteriologically acceptable and the second sample meets certain general water quality standards.

However, if the second sample is bacteriologically questionable or unacceptable, then this precautionary boil water notice will be reissued until two consecutive bacteriologically acceptable samples are demonstrated.
