MANATEE COUNTY, FL (Friday 23, 2013) – Manatee County Utilities Department has issued a Precautionary Boil Water

notice for our customers on 26 ST. W. from 53 AVE. W. going south to the 5500 block west side of 26 ST. Saddle Creek

Plaza and The Sanctuary Condominiums will be affected.

A water main tie in is scheduled for Tuesday , August 27, 2013.The water will be shut off from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 pm.

Customers are 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

between 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. or(941)747-HELP, (941)747-4357 after 5:00 p.m. or on weekends.

*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.
