Sarasota County emergency order on lawn irrigation does not affect Venice residents

From City of Venice Utilities Director Javier Vargas:

Sarasota County Government has issued an emergency administrative order prohibiting residential use of potable water for lawn irrigation in the County. The declaration took effect Wednesday, May 26 and will remain in force for seven days.

This declaration of a state of emergency DOES NOT affect the City of Venice. The City owns and operates a reverse-osmosis water treatment facility that meets current and future needs.

We want to assure our customers that all components that make up the potable water supply and distribution system, including production wells, storage, pump stations, distribution piping and treatment facility, are operating properly.

Please call the City if you have any questions regarding any utility topic at 941-480-3333.
