Town's Subaqueous Wastewater Forcemain Repaired Successfully
The Town experienced an emergency wastewater discharge due to a break in the subaqueous forcemain that pumps the Town’s wastewater under Sarasota Bay to Manatee County Treatment Facility. The break was located on a portion of undeveloped land leading to the treatment facility.
Due to this emergency incident the Town asked the public to practice water conservation efforts to reduce flows, to minimize impacts, and help accommodate repair efforts.
The Town’s emergency contractor has completed the necessary repairs. Wastewater flows have been restored to the Manatee County Treatment Facility. Pressure and flow readings confirm the successful pipe repair.
We appreciate your cooperation in conserving water use to assist the Town’s efforts, and thank you for your patience during this emergency incident.
