Manatee County Reclaimed Water System to be Offline Aug. 13th

Manatee County Utilities announces that for a twenty-four hour period beginning Tuesday, August 13th at 6:00 a.m. customers of the reclaimed water system will experience a service interruption.

Construction is currently in progress to upgrade the Southwest Waste Water Reclamation Facility to ensure compliance with Florida Department of Environmental Protection requirements and to improve service to our reclaimed water users. In order to redirect piping involved in the reclaimed storage lake improvements, the reclaimed water system will be taken offline. Affected areas include the West and Northwest sections of Manatee County. Service is scheduled to resume Wednesday, August 14th at 6:00 a.m.

Customers desiring to know for certain when the system is once again operational, may view system status at
