Manatee County officials tweeted they had reports of three line breaks in the potable water system, with two of the breaks already repaired. The third break would have to be repaired once storm conditions improved, officials said.

Will I receive notice before my water is shut off for non-paymentThe notice to discontinue service is printed in the center of the bill if payment has not been received as authorized under the below city code.

If any bill for water and sewer service charges, including tax, shall not be paid before the 20th day following the original date of billing, an additional charge equal to ten percent of the amount of such bill, including tax, shall be added thereto. If the amount of such water and sewer service charges shall not be paid within 30 days from the rendition of such bill, the director of public works shall discontinue furnishing water to such premises and shall disconnect the premises from the waterworks system of the city and shall proceed forthwith to recover the amount of such water and sewer service charges in such lawful manner as he may deem advisable. (Code 1971, 26-32)

Where is my water meter and why do I have twoYour water meter is normally located at the front corner of your lot, housed in a rectangle shaped meter box which should be at grade so your lawn mower does not damage it. Some homes and businesses actually have a second meter which is used for irrigation.

What is the stormwater fee on my utility billThe general purpose of the storm water utility include administration, management services, operation and maintenance of stormwater infrastructure; engineering studies and programs; regulation of drainage; and financing of existing and future repairs, replacements, improvements and extensions of the stormwater and related infrastructure. (b) All property within the city shall be subject to the utility. (Ord. No. 2562, 1, 10-23-96)

Lawn watering is limited to no more than twice per week. Even addresses may water on Thursday and/or Sunday before 10 a.m. or after 4 p.m. Odd addresses may water on Wednesday and/or Saturday before 10 a.m. or after 4 p.m. Locations without a discernible address, such as rights-of-way and common areas inside a subdivision, may water on Tuesday and/or Friday before 10 a.m. or after 4 p.m. Hand watering and micro-irrigation of plants (other than lawns) can be done on any day and any time.

New lawns and plants have a "30-30" establishment period. On the day of installation, watering is allowed on any day at any time. During the first 30 days, watering is allowed on any day during the allowable hours, before 10 a.m. and after 4 p.m. During the second 30 days, watering is allowed three days per week: even-numbered addresses may water on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday; odd-numbered addresses may water Monday, Wednesday and Saturday; and locations without a discernible address (rights-of-way and common areas) may water on Tuesday, Friday and Sunday.

There are no specific restrictions on fountains, car washing and pressure washing. These and other water uses should be conducted as efficiently as possible, such as using a shutoff nozzle on each hose to lessen wasteful water use.

If you have questions or would like to report a watering violation, please call the Water Hotline at 1-800-848-0499 (FL only) and leave a detailed message; or call 1-800-836-0797 (FL only), ext. 2298 during business hours. You may also email or visit

Anyone on a commercial, for-hire, or private recreational vessel is required to have a venting tool or descending device rigged and ready to use when fishing for reef fish in Gulf of Mexico federal waters.

Keep up-to-date with saltwater and freshwater fishing regulations by using the Fish Rules App. Look for it in the App Store and Google Play for iOS and Android. Enable Location Services to see site-specific regulations for your location. Learn more.

Snook is managed by two regions in Florida: Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico. Regulations apply in state and adjacent federal waters. No commercial harvest or sale of snook is permitted.

"Although there is more than an adequate supply of our water sources, and because the rainy season has not yet started, we're asking MCUD customers to adhere to our year-round watering restrictions," Mike Gore, Manatee County Utilities director, said. "May is one of the drier months of the year with conditions this year even drier than usual."

Water systems throughout the state are being stressed by the increased demand for water caused by dry conditions. For Manatee County, the increased demand is contributing to a system already stressed by important upgrades underway at the Lake Manatee Water Treatment Plant.

Lawn watering days and times may be different if a resident's homeowners association operates under a variance issued by the Southwest Water Management District. Those residents should check with their HOA to determine whether the community has an alternative watering schedule.

MCUD is also asking customers to observe restrictions on drinking water which apply not only to potable water, but also irrigation water that comes from wells, surface water sources including retention ponds, rivers and lakes.

Neighboring Pinellas County has two staff members dedicated to fertilizer ordinance compliance, and two more who regulate landscaping, as well as a supervisor for the group. And a separate staff group works to enforce stormwater pollution regulations.

Manatee County staff measured decreasing nitrogen levels in a majority of inland water bodies sampled between 2011 and 2017, including Rattlesnake Slough, Cooper Creek, Nonsense Creek and Mill Creek, which are in the Manatee River watershed and eventually connect to the bay.

In 2016, Pinellas County staff also found that nitrogen and phosphorus levels had decreased in water bodies since the new fertilizer rules were put in place. Other potential sources of pollution had not significantly changed.

Restrictions apply to all potable (drinking) water and all irrigation waters that come from wells, surface water sources including retention ponds, rivers, lakes, etc. Violations of this directive carry fines up to $10,000 as provided for under Florida Statute 373.129(5).

Lawn watering days and times may be different if your homeowners association (HOA) operates under a variance issued by the Southwest Water Management District. Please check with your HOA if your community has an alternative watering schedule.

Hand watering and micro-irrigation or drip-irrigation of plants, shrubs and trees (lawn areas excluded) can be done on any day of the week and at any time of the day. Lawns may be spot treated without regard to the normally allowable watering days by hand-watering by using hand held hose, fitted with a self-canceling or automatic shutoff nozzle, or a watering can or pail. Lawn spot treatment shall occur during allowable watering hours. (See F.A.C. 40D-22)

Also, only those zones containing 50% new plant material may be watered, not the entire yard. (Example: If you had your entire front yard re-sodded, but not your backyard, only those zones covering the front yard may run during the establishment period. The backyard zones would have to remain on the regular watering schedule. Most irrigation timers have an A & B program. Program A can be set for the regular watering. Program B can be programmed for multiple days to only water those zones containing the new plant material during the establishment period.)

Irrigation using reclaimed water is not subject to watering restrictions, unless blended with another water source (including potable, wells, surface water sources such as ponds, lakes, rivers, etc.). However, it is encouraged to voluntarily conserve reclaimed water by not irrigating between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.Irrigation using reclaimed water that is mixed with any other water source, other than straight reclaimed water, is subject to the same watering restrictions listed above under "Irrigation Hours & Restrictions".

Protecting Florida Together is the state's joint effort to provide water quality information through environmental transparency and a commitment to action.

In August 2000, the Beach Water Sampling Program was extended to 30 of Florida's coastal counties through state legislation (Senate Bill 1412 and House Bill 2145) and funding. In addition, sampling under the new program include fecal coliform as well as enterococci bacteria. The rationale for selecting these two bacteria for analysis and implications of the sampling results are described below. In August 2002, the beach water sampling program also began collecting water samples on a weekly basis with additional funding from U.S. EPA.

Enterococci are enteric bacteria that normally inhabit the intestinal tract of humans and animals. The presence of enteric bacteria can be an indication of fecal pollution, which may come from stormwater runoff, pets and wildlife, and human sewage. If they are present in high concentrations in recreational waters and are ingested while swimming or enter the skin through a cut or sore, they may cause human disease, infections or rashes. 153554b96e
