Bacteriological samples collected from locations in the area have been free of contamination indicating that the water is safe to drink. If residents have any questions they may call (941)-792-8811 ext. 5268 or 5216 between 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

*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.
