Potable water line flushing on island

(March 12, 2020) Crews have begun flushing water lines located on the Island north of Manatee Avenue this week. This flushing has been needed over the past several years in response to less than desired chlorine residual concentrations in this area of the system at this time of the year.  Our present monitoring efforts have indicated a decreasing trend in residuals that will likely require flowing additional water to decrease water age and bring the residuals back to standard levels. There are no precautionary boil water notices so residents need not worry about the safety of the drinking water. 


Manatee County, FL (Friday, March 27, 2020) – Manatee County Utilities Department has issued a Rescission Notice for the Tuesday Night, March 24, 2020 Precautionary Notice for our customers in Palm Village (3528 14th St. W.) and Mermaid Manor (3720 14th St. W.) . Read more
