Manatee County Utilities Department has issued a precautionary boil water notice for customers in the Palma Sola Square Shopping Plaza, which will affect a Starbucks coffee shop, Salem’s Gyros & Subs, Basil's Chicken & Ribs and Ezra Cafe.
A fire hydrant installation is scheduled for Wednesday morning. The water will be shut off from 12:30 a.m. until 3:30 a.m.
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 lifted. To ask questions, call 941-792-8811, ext. 5268 between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. or (941) 747-HELP after 5 p.m. or on weekends.
