Manatee County Wastewater Division

We are currently experiencing difficulties in maintaining pressure in our reclaimed distribution system due to some process changes at our SWWRF. We are working to resolve as quickly as possible and hope to be back to “normal” sometime during the week of June 12th. Our apologies for any inconvenience, thank you for your patience.
