FIF fees to increase October 1, 2019

On June 18, 2019, the Board of County Commissioners passed ordinance 19-22 amending the FIFs.


Small levels of taste and odor (T&O) compounds are present in the drinking water. Customers may detect a musty, dirty odor in their water.  This is a seasonally recurring event that typically abates when rainy season begins.  As a reminder, there is nothing harmful associated with the T&O compounds.

(Tuesday, August 27, 2019) – Manatee County Utilities Department will issue a Precautionary Boil Water notice for our customers between Marina Dr. and Holmes Blvd. from Gulf Dr to 57th St. (Holmes Beach)

A replacement of tee is scheduled for Wednesday Night, August 28, 2019. The water will be shut off from 11:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. 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. Read More
