Water Off/Precautionary Boil Water Notice - Cortez Plaza

MANATEE COUNTY, FL (Tuesday, July 14, 2018) – Manatee County Utilities Department has rescinded a Precautionary Boil Water notice for our customers in Cortez Plaza South west corner of Cortez Rd. and 5 St. W. see red lined map for exacted location.

*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.
