Potable water line flushing on island
(March 12, 2020) Crews have begun flushing water lines located on the Island north of Manatee Avenue this week. This flushing has been needed over the past several years in response to less than desired chlorine residual concentrations in this area of the system at this time of the year.  Our present monitoring efforts have indicated a decreasing trend in residuals that will likely require flowing additional water to decrease water age and bring the residuals back to standard levels. There are no precautionary boil water notices so residents need not worry about the safety of the drinking water. 


There are no notices currently in effect.
