Boil water advisory lifted for areas of Manatee County after Hurricane Ian

Manatee County Utilities says its workers continue to make progress in returning water and sewer services to normal after Hurricane Ian.

MANATEE COUNTY, Fla. — Manatee County Utilities says boil water advisories for residents of Anna Maria, Bradenton Beach and Holmes Beach have been rescinded following the impacts of Hurricane Ian. Potable water service was previously interrupted during the storm. 

Boil water notifications for mobile home residents in the county who had service interruptions are also able to use water for drinking or cooking with no issues except for the following communities: 

  • Terra Ceia Village
  • Leisure Lake Co-Op
  • Sugar Creek Mobile Home Park Estates

Water in these areas is being retested and residents will receive rescission notices as soon as the tests indicate it is safe. 

Manatee County Utilities adds wastewater customers can now use drains for flushing, showering and laundry needs.

"Our dedicated Utilities crews have worked tirelessly to support our citizens," Manatee County Administrator Scott Hopes said in a statement. "Their efforts are paying off." 

Starting Monday, Manatee County Utilities says residents can bring storm debris during extended operating hours from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
