Water Off/Precautionary Boil Water Notice - 34th Ave West - 11/15/17
MANATEE COUNTY – Manatee County Utilities Department has issued a Precautionary Boil Water notice for our customers from 26th Ave West to 34th Ave West between 22nd Street West and 26th Street West.
The installation of a Fire Hydrant is scheduled for Wednesday Night, November 15, 2017. The water will be shut off from 10:00 p.m. until 6:00 a.m. Customer is 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.
*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.
