Water Off/Precautionary Boil Water Notices In Effect

The following notices are in effect:

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

The Tuesday Night, March 24, 2020 Precautionary Notice was hereby rescinded.
Bacteriological samples collected from locations in the area have been free of contamination
indicating that the water is safe to drink.

*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.
