News UpdateMANATEE COUNTY, FL (September 30, 2022) – Water service is being restored to the county’s barrier islands and mobile home parks in the wake of Hurricane Ian.

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 the boil water notice has been lifted.

There is NOT a notice for all residents of the County—only those who are in Mobile Home Parks where the water was turned off and the island.

The rest of the County has water safe to drink.
