City of Bradenton water treatment plant back online after Hurricane Idalia issues

Service is back to normal after the city of Bradenton urged residents to reduce their water usage Wednesday due to problems caused by Hurricane Idalia. The city posted on X, the social media website formerly known as Twitter, around 11 a.m. to alert residents that the water treatment plant was temporarily offline. By 5 p.m., the issue was resolved, city officials said.

For about six hours, municipal water customers were asked to conserve water until the tides, which were high and caused flooding and road closures throughout Manatee County subsided and water levels returned to normal.

In an interview with the Bradenton Herald, Jeannie Roberts, the city’s public information officer, confirmed that Bradenton’s drinking water supply remained safe during that time period. Residents could continue to drink and cook with the water without concern, she said.
